but the school board can definitely reject a hire. I was actually at a board meeting where it happened. The candidate eventually found full-time work in a nearby district.

The first and only time I've heard of it was when the person looking for the position had worked with the schools in the past as a coach and had made alot of parents angry (and likely at least one person on the board who's kids went to this person's school). For them to reject you, I would think there either needs to be a real legal issue or someone on the board knows you and doesn't like you.

Thank you all for the feedback! I guess I feel bad because i would have to tell the other school I wasnít coming for this year two days before I was supposed to come back for a training. My husband said I need to look out for me because no one else will. Itís one awkward phone call. Any advice on what to say to the other school I am turning down?

The only time Iíve seen it happen has been due to unforeseen budget issues. Usually, itís just a formality.

I have never heard of it being anything but a formality. But if your other school is a charter, presumably you're at will and there are no penalties for resigning late, so I wouldn't worry about it if you want to wait for the official word. I wouldn't be concerned about "leading the other school on." They'll find a replacement for you. Think about it this way- there is someone out there that is desperately looking for a job and will be thrilled with a last minute opening.

Nope. Never resigned before I signed paperwork. Also only saw a delayed approval one time because of some criminal issue. Ended up hiring the idiot and should never have done so!

So you wouldnít resign until the other school board hearing? I currently have a charter school job so it is not an official contract but I wonít get board approval till August. Ugh I donít know what to do because I donít want to lead the other school on.

I have never in my 15 years of teaching heard of a school board rejecting a candidate. Itís truly just a formality to make the hiring official.

That said, I would never resign my position until I went through board at my new position.

Hello all!
I was offered my dream job today over the phone but they said ďthe school board does the official hiring.Ē Is it common for the school board to reject a candidate that has been recommended?
