Protect Your License: 60-Day Notice Required Prior to Resignation

Be aware that resignation from PPS carries potential consequences beyond the obvious loss of salary and benefits.  Oregon law states that the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC), the state educator licensing agency, may discipline a licensed educator who resigns their position without first providing a 60-day written notice to their employer school district. (ORS 342.553).

To avoid a potentially negative impact on your teaching license, if you intend to resign from PPS you must give 60-day notice in writing, or have an agreement from PPS that it will waive the 60-day requirement.  You may have to continue working for up to 60 days after giving notice, or until PPS finds someone to fill  your position. Contact your PAT UniServ Consultant before submitting your resignation.
