Probationary/Permanent Status



Probationary employees shall receive training, assistance and evaluations consistent with their needs as new teachers. Such training and assistance may consist of inservice training, participation in the beginning teachers support and assistance program, and/or meetings with the employee’s evaluator to discuss areas of strength and areas requiring improvement. Inservice training may be provided during school hours as part of a comprehensive staff development program.

During the school year, certificated probationary employees may be dismissed for causes specified in Education Code 44932 or for unsatisfactory performance determined pursuant to Education Code 44660-44665. Procedures and time limits for such action shall be those set forth in Education Code 44948.3.

The performance of each probationary employee shall be evaluated and assessed at least once every school year.

Granting of permanent status shall be based on completion of the probationary period in accordance with applicable law. Employees granted permanent status acquire specific rights under the Education Code, including those relating to discipline and dismissal. (Education Code 44932-44988)
