Administrative Employment Contracts, Contract Continuation, and Contract Termination
409.01 Administrative Employment Contracts, Contract Continuation, and Contract Termination
Basic Term of Employment and Termination: Administrators shall be employed for a one-year term. The contract of employment may be renewed by Board of Trustees action on or before April 1 of the year in which the contract expires. Absent action by the Board to renew the contract of employment, the administrator's employment shall terminate at the end of the term. No action by the Board shall be necessary to affect termination at the end of the term of the contract.
After three years of full-time employment by the College on successive one-year contracts, an administrator shall be eligible for a rolling two-year contract, meaning that the employee shall be eligible to have a two-year term of employment, which is renewable annually.
If a rolling two-year contract is granted by the Board, annual renewal shall be in the Board's discretion upon recommendation by the President. Renewal shall be by April 1 each year.
In the event of non-renewal of the rolling contract by April 1 of the school year preceding the final year of the contract, the contract of employment of the administrator shall automatically terminate at the end of the then current two-year term. No further action by the Board shall be necessary to effect the termination.
Contract Termination During Term: Anything in the foregoing notwithstanding, the employment of any administrator may be terminated prior to the end of the term of the contract under which the individual is employed, under the following circumstances:
Dismissal for cause as defined in Board Policy 415.01
Economic or program retrenchment.
Expectation of Employment: No administrator to whom this policy is applicable shall have any expectation of employment beyond the term of the current contract, in the absence of specific formal action by the Board of Trustees in open session, granting an additional term of employment.
Applicability: This policy shall apply to all administrators except for the President. The President shall have a separate contract with the College.
