RESIGNATION OF SUPPORT STAFF MEMBERS
(Employees Not Under Contract)
Any support staff member who desires to resign must submit a written letter of resignation to his or her immediate supervisor. The letter should specify when the resignation is to be effective and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the effective date. A resignation is final upon submission and cannot be withdrawn unless authorized by the supervisor to whom it was submitted. The resignation need not be approved by the Board.
Allegations of Sexual Misconduct with a Student
If a former district employee whose job involved contact with children was terminated, nonrenewed or allowed to resign in lieu of termination as a result of an allegation of sexual misconduct with a student, or as a result of such allegations being substantiated by the Children's Division (CD) of the Department of Social Services' child abuse and neglect review board, the district is required by law to release information regarding the sexual misconduct to a potential public school employer who contacts the district regarding the former employee. In addition, if the CD substantiates a complaint of sexual misconduct with a student against a former employee of the district, the law requires the district to release the results of the CD investigation to any potential public school employer who contacts the district.
When employment ends as a result of an allegation of sexual misconduct with a student, the district will provide appropriate due process prior to the release of information regarding the sexual misconduct to a potential public school employer, if feasible. The superintendent or designee is authorized to consult with the district's attorney to determine the appropriate level of due process to provide.
For the purposes of this policy, employees are considered "former employees" if they have resigned, been terminated, had their contracts nonrenewed, or been notified that their contracts with the district will not be renewed or that the district is pursuing termination, even if the process has not been completed.
