Under these conditions, the new law allows for a hearing on principal retention.
An LSC votes to retain a principal who currently has an unsatisfactory rating from the regional education officer (REO). The general superintendent or a member or members of the LSC may request a hearing to have the contract revoked.
The LSC votes not to retain a principal who has had a satisfactory rating from the REO for the past three years. The principal may request a hearing to have the contract renewed for up to two years.
Only one arbitration hearing may be requested during a principal’s tenure at a school.
