ORS 342.840
Determination of length of service for probationary teacher

For purposes of determining length of service for a probationary teacher, a teacher employed for 135 consecutive days in any school year shall receive credit for a full year of employment. At least 30 consecutive days of employment in the same district in a successive year shall be sufficient to keep the service intact, and the teacher shall not lose credit for previous probationary years served. [1981 c.299 §3]
Note: 342.840 (Determination of length of service for probationary teacher) was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly and was added to 342.805 (Short title) to 342.937 (Reimbursement for teacher dismissal costs) but was not added to or made a part of any smaller series therein. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.

Notes of Decisions

Third-year teacher serving 135-day period required to receive credit for full year attains permanent teacher status upon completion of 135-day period, not upon completion of full school year. Axelsen v. Hillsboro Union High School District No. 3, 898 F. Supp. 719 (D. Or. 1995)
