I've been out of school with severe back issues. If I have a doctors excuse, can P not renew my contract?

Is there something at the district level you have to do? I believe we have to file forms saying that we will not be coming back the next year.

Are you new to the system? Are you considered on probationary status? In many states, teachers can be non-renewed for any reason or no reason until they obtain tenure. It may have changed in my state, but that used to be the first three years. You had to have a contract for the fourth year to be granted tenure. After that it's harder but not impossible to have a teacher fired.

Tenure has been attacked many places, so I don't know about your particular state or system. It may not exist there.

This is definitely a tenure question. If you are probationary, as PP said they can can non-renew for no reason at all (as in they say they arent doing because of your excused absences but because they simply chose not to renew you, and they dont have to say why).

How long have you been with you district-in Ca tenure is 2 years, other places its longer or they have done away with it. Look into tenure rules and contact your rep if you have one.

The probationary teacher thing is so bogus and its not the way they treat employees in other fields I know .

Here, it's the same as the others posted. If you're probationary, they can let you go for any reason or no reason at all- they don't even have to say. If you're non-probationary you would likely be protected. I'd also check to see if there is a deadline for non-renewals in your district. Here, the deadline has already passed.

Talk to your union rep. In most states, they can non-reappoint you for no reason, but if you feel you are being discriminated against due to a medical issue, you may have a case.

If the reason you are not being renewed is because of your medical issues, then you should contact your union (if you have one) or an attorney.
