An educational institution is only as good as the teachers it employs. However, effectively dealing with teacher misconduct can be a challenge, especially with regard to the contracts and legislation, which typically set stringent guidelines for how and when disciplinary action can be carried out.
Contractual obligations and state law can make the process seem intimidating, leading schools to often shy away from confrontations. Fortunately, however, case law tends to side with the school district when the rules are properly followed, leaving school systems with much more discretion as to teacher discipline and discharge than they may think.
Join Susan Torgerson for this eye-opening webinar on teacher discipline and dismissal. During this one-hour session, Torgerson will equip you with the confidence-boosting skills necessarily to effectively carry out disciplinary actions in accordance with the law and build a solid case against potential challenges.
The focus of the session will be on determining whether a staff member is likely to be “remediated” and show improved performance or be on an ongoing disciplinary track for ultimate termination from employment. The presentation will describe the process for identifying the need for discipline (including discharge) of licensed teaching staff as well as a framework for building a successful defense to challenges of the discharge/discipline.
