R 4730 Non-renewal/Termination of Contract: Probationary Teacher

Pursuant to section 168.126.2, RSMo. (Supp. 1992), the Board of Education may choose to non-renew a probationary teacher's contract for the coming school year or may choose to terminate a probationary teacher's employment during the term of a contract in accordance with the following procedures:

Nonrenewal

  1. On or before the 15th day of April in each school year, the Board will notify in writing each probationary teacher whose contract will be nonrenewed for the next school year.

  2. A probationary teacher is not entitled to a warning, a probationary period, notice of charges, nor a hearing prior to the Board's decision to nonrenew the contract of a probationary teacher.

  3. A probationary teacher whose contract is nonrenewed may request a concise statement of the reasons for the Board's decision.

  4. The District will issue a notice to the teacher if the reason for nonrenewal is due to a decrease in pupil enrollment, District reorganization or the financial condition of the District.

Termination of Employment During the Term of a Contract

  1. If, in the opinion of the Board of Education, a probationary teacher is performing his/her professional duties in an incompetent or insubordinate manner, the Board/Superintendent will provide the teacher with a written statement setting out the deficiencies in the probationary teacher's performance and will provide the teacher with a ninety- (90) day probationary period within which to resolve the deficiencies.

  2. If improvement, satisfactory to the Board, has not been made during the ninety- (90) day probationary period, the Board may terminate the employment of a probationary teacher. Prior to consideration of termination, the Board/Superintendent will provide the probationary teacher with a written Statement of Charges and Notice of Hearing. Upon request, the Board will conduct a due process hearing to consider termination.

  3. The Board may also terminate a probationary teacher's contract during the term of a contract for statutory causes as listed in Policy 4730.
