Tenured Teachers Laid Off Due to School Actions |

Tenured teachers laid off due to school actions shall receive the following benefits:

  1. Transfer to receiving schools in school closings and consolidations. Tenured teachers whose most recent rating is in the top two rating categories (i.e., excellent or superior and excellent or proficient) shall be appointed to a vacancy at a school to which students from their school have been assigned to the extent that a vacancy within the teacher’s certification has been created as a result of or in connection with the transfer of students. If more than one teacher is eligible for appointment to the same vacancy, selection for the vacancy shall be based on seniority.
  2. Assignment to the reassigned teacher pool or Cadre. Tenured teachers laid off due to school closings and school consolidations who are not appointed to a vacancy at the school receiving their students and tenured teachers laid off due to turnarounds, reconstitutions and phase-outs shall be assigned to the reassigned teacher pool for a period of five school months, during which time they shall be assigned as a substitute teacher with full pay and benefits. At the end of five school months, if a tenured teacher has not been appointed to a teaching position, he or she shall be assigned to the Cadre for a period of five school months with the Cadre pay and benefits. At the end of five months in the Cadre, if the tenured teacher has not been appointed to a permanent position, the tenured teacher shall be laid off and separated from employment with the BOARD.
  3. Alternative severance benefit. A tenured teacher who has been laid off due to school actions shall be offered the opportunity to resign and receive three months of pay.
