Code No. 325


Building principals shall be employed for a term of one year during the first two years of employment as a principal in the District, provided, however, that a building principal who was previously employed by the District as an associate principal may be employed for a term of up to two years.  The initial three years of employment with the District shall be as a probationary administrator.  Thereafter, building principals may be employed for a term not to exceed two years.  The term shall be specified in the written employment contract.

The contract shall be automatically continued in force and effect for one year beyond the end of its term unless terminated by the parties or pursuant to law.  The Board reserves the right to dismiss the building principal during the contract term for just cause in accordance with law.

If the building principal wishes to resign from a contract, the building principal must comply with Board policies on resignation.
