    A release from contract between July 1 and the beginning of school may be denied until a satisfactory replacement has been secured.

Employees giving advance notice or resigning with the Superintendent's approval shall have their resignation accepted without prejudice. Failure to comply with this Policy may result in a recommendation that the employee be ineligible for reemployment at a future date.

  3. Disclosure of Employment-Related Information

    If facts exist and are known at the time of a resignation which, but for the employee's resignation, would have subjected the employee to another type of termination or disciplinary action, the employee's record should reflect that cause to terminate, to pursue termination of, or to pursue discipline of the employee existed at the time of the employee's resignation. Any records which support the reasons for termination or discipline will be included in the employee's file along with the resignation.
