An Administrator must submit the resignation using the electronic records process directed to the Superintendent/designee; the Superintendent/designee will submit it to the Board with recommendations, as provided by law.
All resignations for the following school year submitted within 21 days of the annual issuance of the contract modifications form shall be accepted by the Board.
All other resignations must be filed at least thirty (30) days prior to the requested release from contract. Except as otherwise provided, no administrator under contract will be released until a suitable replacement has been found. The resigning administrator may be required to reimburse the District $1,000 for liquidated damages incurred in hiring replacement certified personnel. These expenses shall be payable to the District by the resigning administrator as a condition for the Board to accept the resignation. Payment of these expenses shall not be deducted from an employee’s salary unless written permission is granted by the employee. Failure to provide reimbursement will result in a charge being filed in small claims court. This paragraph does not apply to resignations, including, but not limited medical disability, family medical issues or other reasons in the Superintendent's discretion.
If an Administrator covered by the provisions of Chapter 279 or licensed under the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners (BOEE) leaves without proper release, the Superintendent/designee is directed to file a complaint with the BOEE.
