Contract?

I am really confused on what i should do. I recently signed a contract with a district for a part-time traveling teacher. The time i signed was because the need for a job. However, a full time job has open in another district on doing what I love working in the classroom with sped students. The job I have right now is only 20 hours a week. I am wondering can I be released from this contract if I am hired in another district for full time teaching job? Suggestions?

Thank u in advance.

Union?

Do you have a union at all? They would be best able to advise you on the legalities of your signed contract.

I know where I am, if you sign a contract and want to leave the position there are 2 options:
1. Your current principal allows you to with no penalty
2. You can leave but only after 30 days of handing in your resignation, it will also look very bad on your file for leaving mid-year and you may not be hired in that district again.

This is how it is where I currently am... but it could very well be very different for you.

Here you need to give a 30 day notice... It does not look good to not finish a contract, but you have to do what is best for you!
