    Hello,

    Does anyone know when teacher contracts are renewed? Specifically, I'm looking for information about teacher contract renewals in Tennessee and more specifically, contracts for teachers in Maury County Schools.

    I can't find information about renewal dates anywhere. I know things are crazy right now, but not having any idea of when contracts are normally signed is terrifying.

    Have you contacted the HR dept? I'm sure they are working, even if at home.

    Usually in April or May in a typical school district in a typical year, but of course, this isn't a typical year though it is time for districts to start looking at their staffs for next year.

    OP, are you teaching at a public school or a charter school? That can affect when you must receive your contract for the following year, to be sure, but I like swansong1's recommendation to reach out to HR for more concrete guidance Wishing you the best!

    In my TN district, teachers are notified if they will be non-renewed or excessed before the transfer period opens. Those teachers in my building who were non-renewed all knew at the start of April. One has already found new position at charter school.

    Well, I would work with the assumption that since you aren't gone - not non-renewed or RIF'd, there will be a contract in your future. With that said, I will reaffirm that reaching out to HR can almost certainly give you the answer you need to feel secure as this school year comes to a close.
