    EMPLOYEE AGREEMENT:   Should I voluntarily leave Scotland County Schools within two years of receiving this reimbursement, I agree to repay the school system the full amount reimbursements received during the past 2 years. I understand that if my documentation is not submitted within 30 days of completion of the course, I may not receive tuition reimbursement for that course.
