Repeal Of Mutual Consent Teacher Assignment Requirement

Concerning the repeal of the requirement for mutual consent assignments of nonprobationary teachers.
Session:
2016 Regular Session
Subject:
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
Bill Summary

Under existing law, if a nonprobationary teacher (teacher) is removed from a teaching assignment within a school district, the teacher must secure a mutual consent assignment at another school of the school district within a certain time or be placed on unpaid leave. The bill repeals this requirement. The bill requires each school district to assign or dismiss with due process each teacher who was unable to secure a mutual consent assignment and who was placed and remains on unpaid leave as a result. In the new assignment, the teacher must receive the same level of salary and benefits that the teacher would have received if he or she had not been displaced.
