No teacher will be subjected to arbitrary or capricious discipline.
Whenever a professional employee is required to appear before the Board of Education or
representatives of the Board concerning any matter when the discharge, suspension or written
reprimand of the employee is contemplated, he or she will be given prior notice of the reasons for
such meeting, will be entitled to the presence of a representative and will be provided with copies
of all available documents to be presented.
Any complaint made against a professional employee by any parent, student or other person will be
called to the attention of the professional employee. Any complaint not called to the attention of the
professional employee may not be used as a basis for any reprimand, discipline or discharge (per the
Board-approved Performance-Based Teacher Evaluation procedures referred to in policy GCN).
Any professional employee whose employment is being terminated will be afforded the applicable
procedures outlined in state law.
In the event a professional employee is not continued in employment, the Board will, upon written
request, advise the professional employee of the reason therefore in writing.
