Early Resignations/Retirements

In order to assist campuses with planning for the 2016-17 school year, Keller ISD is again offering an Early Resignation Notification Incentive of $750 to the first 100 teachers and other professional instructional staff such as counselors, librarians, diagnosticians, LSSP, nurses, etc. who submit a resignation/retirement letter to their campus principal by March 21, 2016. This early notification will help principals determine staffing and recruitment needs for next year. In addition, teachers who submit their letter by March 21, 2016 will receive an additional $250 for perfect attendance from April 1 through the end of the school year. To be eligible, the employee must be on a probationary, term or continuing contract. This information is in DWW on February 3rd.
