Finally got word today on this mess of a situation. I got an email telling me to officially report to my school tomorrow!! I couldn't be happier This was such a stressful time searching and waiting for this job to go through. Quick question.... if you taught for 3 years in a district, was laid off and now are returning.. would I get tenure. In my state you get tenure after 3 years and 1 day. Tomorrow would be my 1 day. I never refused to go back (i was never offered another position), i never quit, and I wasn't fired. So, I'm not sure if I would get tenure. Just a thought.
