GCQC – Resignation Of A Staff Member

All staff members who sign a contract or Statement of Employment are expected to honor that work agreement.

Resignations tendered between the time the employee signs the contract and July 1 of a given year will not be accepted unless and until a suitable and fully qualified replacement is hired.
Resignations tendered after July 1 of the year of the contract will not be accepted nor will the employee be released from his/her employment.

However, the School Board recognizes that extenuating circumstances may arise which warrants it giving special consideration to a resignation request. In these instances, the Board, upon recommendation of the Superintendent, may make exceptions to this Policy, on a case by case basis.

If an employee under contract or Statement of Employment breaches his/her work agreement to the District, or fails to abide by the terms of this Policy, the Board may initiate such legal actions as it deems appropriate, including monetary damages from the employee.
