Current Bill Summary

SB 109 - Current law states that a permanent teacher must be employed as a teacher in the same school district for five successive years. Under the provisions of this act, a teacher would fit the definition of "permanent teacher" after five total years of service, regardless of district, except that the first year of employment in a district would be probationary. Further, the act states that, should a permanent teacher discontinue teaching for more than five years, that teacher, upon returning to the profession, would be considered a probationary teacher for one year, and after such year would then be granted permanent status.
