Separation from Employment

In order to separate from McKinney ISD, you must submit a letter of resignation to your principal or supervisor. The letter must be dated and include the effective date of your separation, your signature, and the signature of your principal or supervisor. Your separation letter should also list your reason for leaving McKinney ISD.

If you are retiring through the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS), please contact them directly regarding the TRS requirements for retirement. You may access their website via or call 1-800-223-8778. Please note that your separation is processed through MISD, but your retirement is processed through the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS). TRS requires that specific questions related to your retirement be addressed by TRS.

Additional Information about the Separation Process:

  • Employee ID Badge – Turn in your employee ID badge and all other District owned materials. If District owned materials are not returned to your principal or supervisor by your last day of employment, your last paycheck must be picked up by you at the Administration building, #1 Duvall Street, McKinney, TX 75069. You will be required to return all District owned materials at that time.
  • District Devices – All iOS devices supplied to you by the district must be returned to your principal or supervisor with all District owned accessories. You must erase/wipe District issued devices and login to iCloud to release devices from your personal Apple ID. Contact the Help Desk with questions about this process at or 469-302-4048.
