REVIEW ON THE RECORD
Upon are view of the record in this case, the Board reverses the decision of the Appeals Referee. The Claimant was employed as a substitute teacher for the school year 1981-1982. At the end of that school year, the Claimant was given a letter, signed by the Principal of the school which stated that the Claimant will not resume employment with the Baltimore City Public Schools. Under the circumstances, the Board concludes that there was no contractor reasonable assurance that the Claimant would perform services in any capacity during the next academic year or term within meaning of §4 (f )(3) of the Law.
The Claimant did not have a contract or reasonable assurance of performing services for an educational institution within the meaning of §4 (f )(3) of the Maryland Unemployment Law. No disqualification is imposed under this section of the Law.
The Claimant may contact his Local Office concerning the other eligibility requirements of the law.
The decision of the Appeals Referee is reversed.

FINDINGS OF FACT
The claimant first held employment as a Substitute Teacher, on December 1,1981 and was entered on the books of the employer as an employee on November 17, 1981. At the close of the 1981-82 academic year, the claimant worked on the last day of school, June 27, 1982. The claimant last performed services as a substitute teacher on November 26, 1982, and is listed as “current ”on the employer’s books. The claimant enters into the record a statement from the principal of the Victory Elementary School where he taught certifying the date of his completion of substitute services in June 1982. The last sentence of the Letter states “He will not resume employment at the Baltimore City Public Schools”.
CONCLUSIONS OF LAW
Section 4 (f )(3) provides, in substance, that a claimant is not eligible for benefits based upon employment performed in an instructional, research, or principal administrative capacity for an educational institution for a period of paid sabbatical leave provided for by contractor where the leave of employment occurs between two successive academic years and where there is reasonable assurance (though not necessarily a guarantee) that the individual will perform similar services in the following academic year.
The evidence in the instant case demonstrates that there was reasonable assurance that the claimant, employed in a substitute teacher capacity, and whose unemployment occurred between two successive academic years would be offered similar employment upon the resumption of the academic year and, in fact, was offered and accepted such employment.
The claimant had reasonable assurance, under Section 4 (f ) (3) of the Maryland Unemployment Insurance Law, of performing services for an educational institution in an academic year beginning September 1982. He is disqualified from receiving benefits based on service with the Baltimore City Public Schools from June 27, 1982, until the beginning of the academic year in September 1982.
