South Washington County Schools probationary teachers' contracts ended
Cottage Grove Minnesota 7584 80th Street South 55016

The District 833 School Board approved ending contracts for 82 probationary teachers with less than three years employment at last week's meeting. The list includes 10 teachers of Mandarin Chinese who are considered community experts and are on yearly contracts, according to Denise Griffith, district human resources director.

The number of terminated contracts is slightly less than last year, she said, and from one-half to two-thirds will be re-hired for next year.

If contracts are not ended at this time of year, the district would have to pay the teachers next year even if there are no classes for them to teach.
