               REDUCTION IN FORCE/ ABOLISHING A POSITION

The Trenton Board of Education shall provide the professional staff necessary for
the implementation of the instructional program of the District in a manner that is
efficient and economical.

The Board reserves the right to abolish positions and reduce district staff
whenever reasons of economy, reorganization of the school district, reduction in
the number of pupils, or other good cause so warrant. The Chief School
Administrator shall continually review the efficiency and effectiveness of the
District organization and recommend to the Board the abolishment of positions
and the reallocation of duties and positions.

Should it become necessary to reduce the number of employees in the District,
the laws and regulations in the state shall be the controlling guide. If, in the case
of such reduction, candidates for termination are nontenured personnel only, in
accordance with law the primary basis for selection for termination or reduction
shall be the needs of the District’s educational program.


If, in the case of such reduction, candidates for termination or reduction in grade
are tenured in this District, the State Regulations regarding seniority shall be the
primary basis for decision. In the event that there should be equal applicable
seniority among staff members, the decision for reduction or termination shall be
based on the needs of the District’s educational program.

In no case shall any choice be based on arbitrary, capricious or discriminatory
reasons.

When, as the result of the abolishment of a position, a teaching staff member is
reduced in position, the teaching staff member shall receive the salary of the
position to which he or she has been assigned in accordance with law.

The Chief School Administrator or designee shall collect and maintain the
information requisite to the calculation of each teaching staff member’s seniority
status.
