Be aware: Some DOI districts may have earlier resignation deadlines
As another school year winds down, teachers thinking about changing districts this summer need to be aware of the law regarding deadlines for resignation without consent.
Members with probationary, term, or continuing contracts have the right to resign without a district’s consent if they do so no later than the 45th day before the first day of student instruction. For example, in districts beginning on the fourth Monday in August (Aug. 26), the resignation date would be July 12. But some District of Innovation plans have pushed the first day of student instruction into the first or second week of August. For teachers with contracts in those DOI districts, the resignation deadline falls in early July or late June.
