Statutory Requirements of Teacher Contract Laws: A Comparison of the 50 States' Continuing Contract and Teacher Tenure Laws.
Gorkom, Kris Van
This publication summarizes and compares legal provisions covering teacher tenure and contracts for each of the 50 states. The report is organized in three sections. Section 1 presents a summary comparison of the provisions of Washington's teacher contract law with corresponding statutory requirements of the other 49 states. Section 2 identifies those states with legislation that addresses selected issues related to teacher contract laws. Section 3 summarizes teacher contract statutes on a state-by-state basis. Because the focus of the report is on statutes, those teacher contract requirements contained in administrative rules or regulations are not included. An effort was made, however, to include both statutory and regulatory requirements for each state in the subsection on"appeal procedures." (JG)
