Teachers desiring to be released from their teaching contracts to accept positions in other school districts should realize that in many instances this works a severe hardship on the local school district. In arriving at a decision to request a release, they should make every effort to consider the welfare of the district, as well as their own.

In no event will a teacher be released from a contract after August 1 of any given year, except for unusual or extenuating circumstances as well as availability of an acceptable replacement.
