DeSoto County School Superintendent Karyn Gary exercised her discretion and authority to dismiss 10 DeSoto teachers without cause.

Gary said under a 2011 amendment of the Florida statutes, for teachers hired after July 1, 2011, the district may issue probationary contracts, and teachers working under a probationary contract may be dismissed without cause. (Teachers under an annual contract, after the probationary period, can be dismissed only for “just cause,” under the law.)
