6213 PROBATION AND TENURE

Probation

Certified staff members shall be appointed to a probationary period by a majority vote of the Board of Education upon recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools.

Full-time certified staff members shall be appointed to a probationary period of three (3) or (4) four years. However, the probationary period shall not exceed two (3) three years for a teacher previously appointed to tenure in this or another school district or BOCES within the state, provided the teacher was not dismissed from the former district. Years of service as a regular substitute teacher may be applied towards probationary service as applicable under education law.

During the probationary period, a member shall be given assistance in adjusting to the new position, but the essential qualifications for acceptable performance shall be assumed because of the possession by the member of the required certification or license.

Tenure

Certified staff members successfully completing a probationary period may be recommended (by the Superintendent) to the Board for tenure appointment.

The Board will follow all applicable statutes regarding tenure.
