Probationary/Permanent Status   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Permanent status is granted by law to teachers who have satisfactorily passed a period of probationary service. Permanent personnel may continue in teaching positions if they keep their teaching certificate in force, remain free from communicable diseases, and are not dismissed for reasons specified in the State School Law.

Permanent status applies only to teachers holding regular credentials issued by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

A teacher who has been employed by the district for two consecutive school years and is then rehired for the next succeeding school year shall become a permanent employee at the commencement of the third year. (Education Code 44929.21(b))

Probationary Employees

Upon assignment to a school, a probationary certificated employee shall receive written assurance that his/her potential need for training, assistance, and evaluation is recognized. (Education Code 35160.5)

Probationary employees shall receive training, assistance, and evaluations consistent with their needs as new teachers and shall be given the opportunity to increase their competency as teachers through the staff development program of the district. Such training and assistance may consist of in-service training and/or meetings with the employee's evaluator to discuss areas of excellence and areas requiring improvement. In-service training may be provided during school hours as part of a comprehensive staff training program.

Evaluations will recognize potential special needs of probationary employees.

Evaluation and assessment of the performance of each probationary employee shall be made on a continuing basis every school year.

The Board shall review this policy annually.
