Neill, Shirley Boes; Custis, Jerry
This report, addressed to administrators and board members, discusses teacher dismissals in light of such motivating factors as declining enrollment, teacher supply and demand, and budget problems. Divided into nine chapters, this how-to-do-it book discusses some of the following topics: facts and figures on the dismissal of teachers, alternatives to dismissal, evaluation systems, the legal safeguards of due process, building a dismissal case, examples of 12 dismissal cases, factors influencing reduction in force (RIF), examples of four types of RIF systems, and practical advice from experts in the field. Charts and checklists are scattered throughout to aid the user in implementing a workable RIF policy. (Author/LD)
