Resigning.....

I am currently a teacher in a charter school. I was offered a position in a public school setting which I have wanted for some time. My problem is, they start PD next week and I have not officially notified my current school. It all happened fast because of unexpected departures from the new school. We officially start on Monday but students don't attend until the 14th. How horrible is it not to give a two week notice. I feel awful about it, but I don't want to turn down the other job offer just because of a time crunch. Any thoughts?

I think I may have posted on the wrong board. My apologies if this is the case but would still appreciate any feedback you have.

It won't be the first time this has happened, and it won't be the last. Do what is best for you, you didn't have any advance notice, either. Just let them know right now, give them your apologies, and look forward to a new year in a new school.

Life can't always be planned in a time frame. It would have been rude if you had known and were purposefully waiting to let them know, but you didn't. It was unexpected. That's life. It's admin's job to worry about these things. Just let them know asap. Enjoy your new position!

I agree with the others above me. I think it boils down to contracts... Not having one at the former school and making sure you have signed one for the new school before you resign. Best wishes for your new job!

Go for it!! Let your former school know as soon as you sign your contract for the new school (don't do it before then!).

It will be okay, the other school will find someone who will no doubt be thrilled to have the job!

Good luck!

I'm in the same boat.

What is your contract wording? I will need to be (mercifully) released or will be held in breech of contract. Either way I'm leaving the school. In-service starts on 8/11, students return on 9/2. However, contractually, I could potentially be held liable for "damages" in the amount of $4000.
