R 4732 Termination of Contract: Administrators

Contracts for administrators under this policy and regulation may be nonrenewed for any lawful reason. Administrators will be notified on or by April 15 of the Board's intention to reemploy them in their present positions, another position or to nonrenew their employment. On or by May 15, the Board will provide each returning administrator with a written contract. Administrators will have ten (10) calendar days from receipt of the offered contract to accept or reject the contract. Failure to respond in a timely manner will be considered a rejection of the Board's offer.

Non-Renewal Process

Administrators who have been reemployed by the Board as a District administrator five (5) times or more are entitled to certain due process procedures. Within ten (10) calendar days of receipt of notification of nonrenewal or reassignment, eligible administrators have ten (10) calendar days within which to request in writing a statement of reasons for the Board's action. The Board will respond in writing within ten (10) days of receipt of the administrator's request. The administrator will then have ten (10) calendar days to submit a written request for a Board hearing. The hearing will then be held within ten (10) calendar days of the receipt of the request for a hearing. The purpose of the hearing is to provide the administrator with the opportunity to convince the Board to reconsider their decision.

Administrators who have been reemployed as a District administrator less than five times are entitled only to notice of nonrenewal or reassignment by April 15.

Reduction in Force

Administrators are subject to reduction in their administrative positions at any time. The procedures for such reductions are the same as for probationary teachers. (Refer to Regulation 4740 - Reduction in Force: Certificated Staff.)
