It is the practice of the administration to recommend certificated employees who request to resign in June or July be released from their contracts when there’s a “good cause” as determined by the board. Penalties were amended for late notification of resignation.
Summer school was approved for two weeks running from May 16th through May 27th. The current school calendar was amended to make April 27, a half-day.
