- Any employees in positions required by statute to receive such contracts, including SBEC-certified employees serving full-time as principals, assistant principals, teachers, school counselors, diagnosticians, librarians, and athletic directors;
- Full-time professional employees in other positions for which the District requires current SBEC certification; and
- Full-time nurses.
