Probationary teacher means a certificated teacher who is not a continuing teacher.
Continuing teacher means:
A. a certificated teacher who has been and is currently employed by the District for the major portion of three (3) consecutive school years, and;
B. who has not been designated in the lowest performance classification for the previous school year or who has not regained continuing status after being designated as a probationary teacher.
A continuing teacher becomes a probationary teacher in the school year following having been designated in the lowest performance classification and shall remain a probationary teacher until that teacher's performance classification is designated in either of the two (2) highest performance classifications.
Administrators are not covered under the terms of the teacher appointment and evaluation statutes and do not gain credit toward continuing status.
