The first three years of a new full-time certificated employee's contract shall be a probationary period.  The probationary period for part-time certificated employees shall be based upon formulas provided by state statute.


During this probationary period the board may terminate or amend the certificated employee's contract at year-end or discharge the employee in concert with corresponding board policies.


Certificated employees may also serve a probationary period based upon their performance.  Such probationary period shall be determined on a case-by-case basis in light of the circumstances surrounding the employee's performance as documented in the employee's evaluations and personnel file.  Prior to such a determination the employee will be allowed due process as provided by state statutes and the Negotiated Contract.
