9 lish criteria and procedures for the supervision and evaluation of certifi-

14 employee's personnel file. Such evaluation criteria for certificated
15 employees shall include, but not be limited to, the student achievement
16 results for the students in the charge of the certificated employee.
17 When any such employee's work is found to be unsatisfactory a reasonable
18 period of probation shall be established by the board after which action shall
19 be taken by the board as to whether the employee is to be retained, immedi-
20 ately discharged, discharged upon termination of the current contract or reem-
21 ployed at the end of the contract term under a continued probationary status.
22 Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 67-2344 and 67-2345, Idaho Code, a
23 decision to place certificated personnel on probationary status may be made in
24 executive session and the employee shall not be named in the minutes of the
25 meeting. A record of the decision shall be placed in the employee's personnel
26 file. This procedure shall not preclude recognition of unsatisfactory work at
27 a subsequent evaluation and the establishment of a reasonable period of proba-
28 tion. In all instances, the employee shall be duly notified in writing of the
29 areas of work which are deficient, including the conditions of probation.

31 including any specially chartered district, each such certificated employee
32 shall be given notice, in writing, whether he or she will be reemployed for
33 the next ensuing year. Such notice shall be given by the board of trustees no
34 later than the fifteenth day of June of each such year. If the board of
35 trustees has decided not to reemploy the certificated employee, then the
36 notice must contain a statement of reasons for such decision and the employee

38 decision by the board of trustees.
