1443 - NON-RENEWAL OF ADMINISTRATIVE CONTRACTS

If the Board of Education determines to consider non-renewal of the contract of an administrator, either the Board or the Superintendent shall notify the administrator in writing of:

 

A.

the reasons for possible non-renewal, which shall not be arbitrary or capricious; and

 
 

B.

the right to meet with a majority of the Board, in open or closed session, to discuss the decision prior to the vote on non-renewal.

Such notice must be delivered to the administrator at least thirty (30) days prior to the date that the Board will vote on the issue of non-renewal.

The vote on non-renewal must occur:

 

A.

in an open session; and

 
 

B.

at least sixty (60) days prior to the termination date of the administrator's contract.

Written notice of the non-renewal decision must be provided to the administrator at least sixty (60) days prior to the termination date of the administrator's contract.

If the Board fails to allow for a meeting, or if the non-renewal is for arbitrary or capricious reasons as determined by a court, then the contract is renewed for one additional year.
