Resignation deadline approaches
Under Chapter 21 of the Texas Education Code, educators have a penalty-free resignation deadline that falls on the 45th day before the first day of instruction of the coming school year.
For the 2021-2022 school year, that resignation deadline is July 2, 2021. This date is based on the 2021-2022 base calendar.
Resignations are generally accepted via the electronic submission process, using the Oracle log-in, and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on July 2, 2021. The resignation deadline will be enforced, and resignations received after the July 2 deadline will be considered on a case-by-case basis, depending upon the date of submission and the circumstances, and whether the campus has sufficient time to secure a suitable replacement.
