AN ACT TO CLARIFY ELIGIBILITY FOR EXTENDED TEACHER CONTRACTS, TO REQUIRE COMPLETION OF AN ECONOMICS AND PERSONAL FINANCE COURSE AS A HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION REQUIREMENT IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, TO CLARIFY REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL CIVIC LITERACY, AND TO REQUIRE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR ECONOMICS AND PERSONAL FINANCE TEACHERS.
Under GS 115C-325.3, which requires a contract or renewal of a contract between a local school board of education and teacher employed by the local board of education for three years or more to be for a term of one, two, or four school years. Now sets out the following conditions that must be met for contracts or renewal of contracts for those terms: (1) the teacher must have been employed by the local board of education as a teacher for three or more consecutive years immediately preceding the effective date of the contract; (2) the teacher has worked for at least 120 days as a teacher in a full-time, permanent position in each consecutive year; and (3) days the teacher did not actually work due to leave must not court toward the 120 days (if the teacher did not work 120 days in a year only because of sick leave, disability leave, or leave under the Family and Medical Leave act of 1993, the year is not considered a break in service and any previous consecutive years worked are consecutive to the following year).
