ST. LOUIS BOARD OF EDUCATION REGULATION
CERTIFICATED EMPLOYEES - All certificated employees shall be required to provide written notice to their immediate supervisor of resignations during or prior to the April transfer period (April 1 to 14) to be effective from June 30 to the beginning of the next school year. Exceptions to this requirement shall require evidence of extenuating circumstances which precluded the employee from providing such notification. The superintendent of schools will consider evidence and make a recommendation to the Board of Education.
If the certificated employee resigns or leaves his/her job without giving the notice as outlined above, the board will retain the superintendent's copy of the teaching certificate in the personnel file until the end of the contract year and refuse any request for re-employment of the employee. The board may call for legal action against the certificated employee and also may file a formal complaint with the state department of education asking for revocation or suspension.
NON-CERTIFICATED EMPLOYEES - Non-certificated employees shall be required to provide written notice to their immediate supervisor 14 calendar days before the date of their intended separation. Exceptions to this requirement shall require evidence of extenuating circumstances which precluded the employee from providing such notification. The superintendent of schools will consider the evidence and make a recommendation to the board.
If a non-certificated employee leaves his/her job without giving the notice outlined above, the board may refuse any further request made by the employee for re-employment.
All resignations tendered to the superintendent of schools and submitted to the Board of Education shall be considered final unless a withdrawal is requested by the employee and recommended by the superintendent of schools to the board for approval.
All personnel who resign shall be encouraged to complete an exit interview form. On an annual basis the Division of Human Resources will initiate and complete personal exit interviews with not less than 5 percent of the employees resigning from the district. A summation of these interviews shall be presented to the superintendent of schools for his/her consideration when modifying and implementing programs and services of the district.
