DID YOU KNOW?

How Far Can Teacher Discipline Go Without Involving the Tenure Act?

To what extent may a school district discipline a tenured teacher without triggering the time-consuming and expensive mandatory provisions of the Teacher’s Tenure Act, e.g., written charges, board of education action, suspension with pay, full evidentiary hearing before an administrative law judge, legal briefs, and final decision of the Tenure Commission?

Certainly, oral and written reprimands and paid suspensions have never been subject to the jurisdiction of the Tenure Commission, while discharges and demotions have always, and continue to, require full compliance with the Tenure Act.
