5.02 Probationary Period and Continuing Appointment

Last Revised: 12 May 2000
Refer Questions To: Vice President, Clerc Center

Scope

This policy applies to regular status teachers in the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center (Clerc Center) of Gallaudet University.

Policy

The first four years of a teacher's regular status appointment are considered a probationary period. Reappointment during this period is not automatic and is at the sole discretion of the Clerc Center. Reappointment decisions are, in part, based on program needs, budgetary considerations, and satisfactory performance (including sign language skills). Absent any extenuating circumstances, teachers holding a probationary appointment are notified of a decision not to reappoint for the following academic year no later than March 1. (An appointment of fewer than 95 working days does not count as one year of the probationary period.) Satisfactory completion of the probationary period is not a guarantee of continuous employment.

Teachers who satisfactorily complete the probationary period may be recommended to receive a continuing appointment beginning with their fifth year of service. Teachers who receive a continuing appointment may be dismissed only for adequate cause. A teacher who does not receive a continuing appointment will not be reappointed beyond the fourth year of employment.

Final decisions regarding reappointment, non-reappointment, and a continuing appointment are made by the Vice President of the Clerc Center.
