The superintendent at a meeting of the board on or before April 15 of each year shall provide in writing to the board a list of all probationary teachers that he or she recommends to be rehired for the next ensuing school year. The board shall act upon the superintendent's recommendations at that meeting in accordance with section one of this article. The board at this same meeting shall also act upon the retention of other probationary employees as provided in sections two and five of this article. Any such probationary teacher or other probationary employee who is not rehired by the board at that meeting shall be notified in writing, by certified mail, return receipt requested, to such persons' last known addresses within ten days following said board meeting, of their not having been rehired or not having been recommended for rehiring.
Any probationary teacher who receives notice that he or she
has not been recommended for rehiring or other probationary
employee who has not been reemployed may within ten days after
receiving the written notice request a statement of the reasons for
not having been rehired and may request a hearing before the board.
The hearing shall be held at the next regularly scheduled board of
education meeting or a special meeting of the board called within
thirty days of the request for hearing. At the hearing, the
reasons for the nonrehiring must be shown.
