GCPB: Registration of Teaching Staff Members

G: Personnel

Continuing and Temporary Contract Teachers 

Resignations from continuing contract teachers shall be in writing, with a minimum of 30 days notice, addressed to the Superintendent of Schools, and the continuing and temporary contract teacher shall remain bound by his/her contract until the end of the school term.  However, the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) recognizes that circumstances may force an employee to request a release from a contract; for that reason, the Board authorizes the Superintendent to release a teacher from a contract at any time the Superintendent considers such a release justified, provided a suitable replacement can be found. 

Teachers who, during the period of their engagement with the Board, receive an appointment as officers in the Ministry of Education (the “Ministry”) may, within 24 hours of accepting the post with the Ministry, submit their resignation to the Board and shall be released from their contracts. 

Teachers who are transferred but do not wish to comply with the transfer may resign immediately by giving 30 days written notice to the Board, through the associate superintendent - area.
