Contracts, Certificates, and Personnel Records


Contracts will be made by the Board with all certificated employees in a form prescribed by the Superintendent. The School Board will endeavor to execute such contracts as soon as possible after such employees assume their duties. A letter of intent may be given to the employee in order to allow time to establish the terms of employment and verification of experience. Written contracts for classified staff, substitutes or temporary employees are not required.

Certificate Renewal

Each certificated employee has the responsibility of keeping his/her certificate active.

Personnel Records

Upon request, an employee has the right to review the contents of his/her personnel file, except for references which are received on the basis of pledged confidentiality as a part of pre-employment process. References, who have waived this confidentiality in writing, may have their reference forms reviewed by the employee.  See Policy 5260.
