Viewing Policy: SP 4117.2 Resignation



Any  employee who desires to resign his/her position shall submit, in writing, a letter of resignation which indicates the date which the employee intends as his/her last day at work. The San Benito County Superintendent of Schools encourages employees to provide advance notice that is appropriate for the position they hold.


The Superintendent or designee shall accept an employee’s written resignation and set its effective date. Once the County Superintendent or designee has accepted and set an effective date for this resignation, the resignation may not thereafter be withdrawn by the employee.


The effective date of the resignation of a classified employee shall be a date not later than the close of the school year during which the resignation is received. However, an employee and the County Superintendent may agree that a resignation will be accepted at a mutually agreed upon date not later than two years beyond the close of the school year during which the resignation is received by the County Superintendent.  (Education Code  45201)
