Departing Your School District

The Risks of Leaving a School District

As devoted educators in California, teachers are integral to their communities, yet they face significant risks concerning their professional credentials. The Commission on Teacher Credentialing vigilantly monitors credential holders and does not hesitate to take action under various circumstances. Surprisingly, even leaving a job can trigger disciplinary measures under certain conditions.

Triggering Disciplinary Measures: Contract Breach Concerns

Imagine a scenario where a teacher needs to exit a contract prematurely due to an emergency, or decides to accept a different offer after having already committed to a district. Such decisions can prompt the Commission to initiate either an Informal or Formal Review to assess if there should be consequences for what they deem a breach of contract.
