As a teacher, am I bound to a 30-day notice if I never have signed a contract for the past 3 years for the position I am currently working? I have another job offer which requires me to give a 2-week notice. My current school district says I must give a 30-day notice or lose my license to teach. Was hired July 2016 (no contract). I requested a contract July 2018 and was never given one.
This is correct. See this page from the NC Board of Education, listing the 9 grounds for revocation of a license.
- resignation from employment with a LEA without thirty work days' notice, except with the prior consent of the local superintendent;
A written contract is not required. I assume you were in fact working without a written contract in the prior year, that is, you were an employee.
