And since I'm here, the poster below talking about a teacher having propriety rights to their position, I have to beg to differ. A few years ago, when I was fresh out of school, I taught with a choir director who had been at the district for 12 years. No problems, no write-ups, no growth plans ever. Obviously on a term contract. They were non-renewed. They showed me the letter that was delivered by certified mail....yes, they were non-renewed. That fall, we had a new choir director.
