Prev Article 54. - TEACHERS' CONTRACTSNext


72-5412.Contracts bind both teachers and board of education; suspension of license, when; insufficient budget, effect. All contracts shall be binding on both the teacher and board of education of the school district until the teacher has been legally discharged from such teacher's teaching position or until released by the board of education from such contract. Until such teacher has been discharged or released, such teacher shall not have authority to enter into a contract with the board of education of any school district for any period of time covered in the original contract. If upon written complaint, signed by 2/3 of the members of the board of education of the school district, any teacher who is reported to have entered into a contract with another school or board of education without having been released from such former contract, or for other reasons fails to fulfill the provisions of such contract, such teacher, upon being found guilty of such charge at a hearing held before the state board of education, shall have such teacher's license suspended for the remainder of the term for which such contract was made. The hearing before the state board shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, any contract of employment made by the board of education of any school district prior to the public hearing on the budget of such school district shall be voidable in case adequate funds are not available in such budget for the compensation provided for in such contracts.
