I have been working in a school district as a part time employee for the past 6 years. I have my teaching certificate and I work under the Title one program. I have no benefits or contract. I was told recently that I would not be invivted to work in this program next year,however I could get on the substitute teacher list. The reasons that they gave me for my dismissal were all trumpt up. In addition the school board must vote on my dismissal and they did not. I was never given any written or verbal warnings of any kind. I was never observed in the classroom. Do they have the right to release me without first notifying the school board, and without any warnings?



Your rights depend on whether you were hired "at will"--you and your employer have the right to terminate the employment relationship without reason. most employment is at will. The other concern is whether you were hired on a contract basis. Title 1 funds are usually given for one school year only and must be reapplied for by the school district each year. So, your employment would depend on whether they get the funds each year. I would check on what is in your employment contract. And if you have questions about it, contact the superintendent's office of your school district.
