Senate Bill 153
Documentation for Teachers and Administrators Terminated for Financial Reasons
Effective Date: July 1, 2012
If a teacher, administrator, or other employee with a definite term contract is terminated or suspended due to a reduction in staff resulting from the loss of students or cancellation of programs and through no fault of his or her own, the local unit of administration must specify in writing to that employee that the termination or suspension is due to no fault or performance issues of the employee. The purpose of this is to ensure that the potential future employers of teachers who have been terminated only for financial reasons do not incorrectly assume that their termination was due to poor performance.
