307 - Superintendent Contract and Contract Nonrenewal

The length of the contract for employment between the Superintendent and the Board is determined by the Board and stated in the Superintendent’s contract.  The contract will begin on July 1 and end on June 30.  The contract will state the terms of employment.

The first three (3) years of employment of a newly employed superintendent is considered a probationary period.  The Board may extend the probationary period for an additional year upon the consent of the Superintendent.  In the event of termination of a probationary or non-probationary Superintendent, the Board shall afford the Superintendent appropriate due process.  The Superintendent and Board may mutually agree to terminate the Superintendent’s contract.

If a Superintendent's contract is not being renewed by the Board, the contract will be extended automatically for additional one year periods beyond the end of its term until it is modified or terminated as mutually agreed to by the parties or until the Superintendent's contract is terminated consistent with statutory termination procedures.

It is the responsibility of the Board to provide the contract for the Superintendent. If the Superintendent wishes to resign, to be released from a contract or to retire, the Superintendent must comply with Board policies dealing with retirement, release or resignation.
