School Psychologist Resignation Letter Sample

Updated on: December 29, 2015

When you think “resignation”, you also think “resignation letter”. These two go hand in hand. You cannot resign without first handing in a resignation letter to your employer. And acceptance of a resignation letter matters too. What if you end up writing a resignation letter that has little or no chances of being accepted? Is that even possible? Yes, it is very possible that you write a resignation letter that is not convincing and your employer rejects it, forcing you to abide by the employment agreement that you signed – most agreements have a clause that has terms akin to release will be granted upon acceptance of resignation letter.

When you write a resignation letter from school psychologist position, make sure that it edicts precise information on why you want to leave and how you intend to make up for your absence. Make sure that your resignation letter is in sync with the employment agreement that you signed at the beginning of your employment period so that there are no problems at a later time.

Resignation letters need to be short – there is no need to go into details of predicaments that have led to your decision to resign. But providing a brief reason is important.

Dear Ms. Port:

Re: Resignation

I am writing to resign from my position as School Psychologist for Trotting Park High School. As indicated in my employment contract, I am providing two week’s notice of my intention to leave. This will provide you with enough time to make arrangements for finding my replacement. Please note that January 12, 2016 will be my last working day.

Recently, I have realized that my capability to handle the workload entrusted to me is becoming lesser and lesser – a fact that I do not much like. However, being a professional psychologist, I understand the implications of workload on an individual and before I am crushed under it, I would like to take a sabbatical from work. I realize that this inability is due to my own overwhelming state and has no bearing on the load that the school has entrusted on me. However, I do not want to find myself in a situation where I am not able to do justice to my work.

I would appreciate it if you process my leaving documents and outstanding payments before or on my last day at work. I will remain available on my desk to manage handing/taking process and to train my replacement.


Best Regards,

Irma Hans
