In Texas, teachers are employed under either a probationary, term, or continuing contract. Teachers have certain due process rights if a school district wishes to part ways with a teacher. These rights depend on (1) which type of contract a teacher has, and (2) whether the school district attempts to “non-renew” or “terminate” the teacher. Reichek routinely represents teachers in the hearing or grievance proceedings that a teacher may avail herself of if she wishes to challenge a proposed non-renewal or termination of her teaching contract. There are strict deadlines associated with these proceedings, so if you have received a notice of proposed non-renewal or termination, contact us right away to discuss your rights.
