I am the Data and Assessment Coordinator and my supervisor is the Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. I was not fired. My position was eliminated and the district created 5 new coaching positions that I had the opportunity to apply for. I chose not to as it was a reduction in pay as well as benefits. They have not notified me nor can I find anything in the school board minutes other than the approval that my position had been eliminated.
Based on my contract language, I am an administrator. I guess I am confused about this language as I am not a principal, director, or superintendent. My position, benefits, retirement, etc. is as other district administrators (principals, asst principals, and instructional directors). If this clarification doesn't help you answer my question, where do I go next to determine if I am covered under 118.24? Thank you.
