Hi everyone! I feel like I see conflicting information, so I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with this. I found out a few weeks ago that my contract will not be renewed for the upcoming school year. I had been in the district for 3 years. All my observations were great, but this past year I moved to a new position where my co-teacher had issues with me (administration knows she is difficult to work with). Anyway, verbally when I was told over Zoom that my contract would not be renewed, my P said that is was because I had trouble getting along with this woman (she apparently complained about me) and that maybe another district would be a better fit. I truly believe it is more budgetary and they are looking to save money by hiring someone cheaper (they were paying my to go back to school to get certification for this position, so I was/would be making a lot of movement on the guide and I was already fairly high up. Plus my family was all covered under the health benefits, and next year I was going to be able to put them under the dental plan). Anyway, I have the official letter from my school district and all it says it that 'this letter is to formally advise you that your contract will not be renewed" for the upcoming school year and thanks me for my years of service. They did already hire someone for my position (they are cheaper- shocking!). My real question is am I eligible for unemployment? Thank you for any insight!! Side note: I do know all about the option to resign and chose not to do that.
