Abstract

This article explores the legal status of letters of intent for contracted employees in public schools from both the employee's and school district's perspective. The wording of a school district's letter of intent was found to be crucial when judging whether the document is binding on either party. However, if a teacher returns a negative response regarding continuation of employment, school officials should use the negative letter of intent as a prelude to formally receiving a letter of resignation or give a notice of nonrenewal, the reason being the teacher's expressed intent not to return to the previously held position.
