(from Ch. 122, par. 24-14)
Termination of contractual continued service by teacher.
A teacher who
has entered into contractual continued service may resign
at any time by obtaining concurrence of the board or by serving at least 30
days' written notice upon the secretary of the board. However, no teacher
may resign during the school term, without the concurrence of the board,
in order to accept another teaching assignment. Any teacher
terminating said service not in accordance with this Section may be referred by the board to the State Superintendent of Education. The State Superintendent or his or her designee shall convene an informal evidentiary hearing no later than 90 days after receipt of a resolution by the board. If the State Superintendent or his or her designee finds that the teacher resigned during the school term without the concurrence of the board to accept another teaching assignment, the State Superintendent must suspend the teacher's license for one calendar year. In lieu of a hearing and finding, the teacher may agree to a lesser licensure sanction at the discretion of the State Superintendent.
