Are You Comfortable Signing Your Letter of Intent?

School leadership has most likely asked you about your employment intentions for the 2020-21 school year. Most schools request that employees complete a letter of intention, indicating your plans for next year. This helps schools fill staffing positions with the best possible candidate. 

It is important that you review and understand your contract, as this outlines the working conditions and expectations for both you and your employer. This includes attached appendices such as the school’s Community Standards Document. If you have questions about your contract, its appendices, or are considering a change in employment, it is important to discuss these with leadership as early as possible. 

Be reminded that signing the Letter of Intention is an INTENTION (aim or goal) to return. If you are considering not returning, your contract will outline the amount of notice required (normally 120 days, or by April 1) to give to your employer.
