GCJ: Professional Teacher Status

Teachers and certain other professional employees who have served in the district for three consecutive years will be entitled to professional teacher status unless they fail to achieve a proficient rating in all four standards. The Superintendent will base his/her decisions on the results of evaluation procedures conducted according to law, regulation, and Committee policy.

Notification to staff members not being reappointed must be made as determined by law, regulation, and the collective bargaining agreement.

Nothing in these provisions will be considered as restricting the Superintendent from changing teaching assignments or altering or abolishing supervisory assignments except that, by law, no teacher may be assigned to a position for which he/she is not legally qualified.
