The Due Process clause as outlined in the fourteenth Amendment states that a state cannot deprive an individual the right to life, property and liberty without a due process of law. This clause applies to school districts in which the school district must follow a procedure before dismissing a teacher or any district employees. The due process does not align the reasons for dismissal. These are found in the state statutes. In California, these are found in the Education Code.
A tenured teacher is one who has worked in a school district for more than three years. A tenured teacher’s contract renews automatically. A tenured teacher’s also gets protection from demotion and salary reductions. Tenure however does not protect the teacher from dismissal. The California Education code outlines the grounds for dismissal. These grounds are …show more content…
For a probationary officer, a notice should be given 30 days before a written notice of dismissal is issued. This notice gives the reasons for dismissal and also an opportunity to appeal. The thirty day period is given to allow the teacher to correct the mistakes. On receiving the notice for dismissal, the teacher is given 15 days to request a hearing. A judge is appointed to conduct the hearing (Cal. EDC code § 44948.3). The governing board however has the final decision on the dismissal of the teacher.
For permanent teachers in California, the timelines depend on the reason for dismissal. If the charges are of unprofessional conduct, the governing board should give the teacher 45 days before filing the notice for dismissal. This time is given to provide the teacher a chance to correct their faults. For unsatisfactory performance, the board should give notice 90 days before filing the charges (Cal. EDC code §44938). Once the official charges are adopted the teacher is given 30 days to request a hearing. Hearings are held within 60 days from the date the employee demanded a

Your district must implement a Reduction in Force (RIF) based on declining enrollment and budget cuts. You have recommended a list of teachers from your school to the superintendent. One of the teachers on the list had previously filed an EEOC suit against you alleging discrimination regarding a department chair’s position that she was not awarded. You know that she will allege retaliation as the basis for her layoff.
Superintendent Elliott made some errors in this situation. A couple of the errors were responding to the parent complaint without referring him to the proper level and failing to listen to the principal. The complaint that was made by the parent is something that should have been handled by the building principal. Instead of trying to take care of the situation himself the superintendent he should have led the parent to the correct building level channel first to come to allow them the chance to come to a solution. The building principal should have been able to build a stronger school community relation with this parent by being honest and handling his mistake.
Chapter 13 Article Respecting the Seventh Amendment Chapter 13 of the textbook, Constitutional Law and the Criminal Justice System by J. Scott Harr, Karen M. Hess, Christine Orthmann, and Jonathon Kingsbury, discusses in great detail all of the more uncommon amendments under the United States (U.S.) Constitution. These amendments consist of the third, seventh, ninth, tenth, eleventh, thirteenth, and finally, the fourteenth amendments (Harr, Hess, Orthmann, & Kingsbury, 2015, p. 437-443). All of these seven amendments are for the most part, not highly discussed in today’s society; however, as of late the seventh amendment has been receiving more and more attention. To briefly sum up, the seventh amendment is part of the Bill or rights in the
Again, all students claimed their rights to the due process clause of the 14th amendment were violated. The major purpose of the due process clause is for a person to be heard. It basically gives a person the chance to defend accusations that are being made against them. It clearly states that students must be given some type of prior notice, and they must be given some type of arena to hear and defend those accusations.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized". The 4th amendment was made based on the Founding Fathers experience with the Kings agents and the all purpose rit of assistances that they used abusively. Without the 4th amendment, we would be at the will of the police because they could come into our household, search anything and take whatever they want. "A reasonable expatiation of privacy" the 4th amendment secures the protection of the people
The teacher will use extinction by not asking Carla to complete the work on which she displays her behaviors. The teacher will then be stopping reinforcement to have Carla complete activities in the classroom. Since Carla has some destructive behaviors and they disrupt the other students, her punishment will be that she is placed in time out after her behavior occurrences such as her tantrums. Her timeout will be in the classroom but she will not be able to participate in fun activities. Her timeout will only last a few minutes and the teacher will explain to Carla why she was in time out and that she cannot use destructive behavior during class.
As such, I am asking all of you to review the facts of the matter and give your recommendation or thoughts. Also, we follow similar procedures to ASU’s SSR and UHB. As a University Hearing Board member, we have followed rules similar to both ASU SSR and UHB in this matter. ASU typically places students under probation status when their suspension status is
In every school there are set policies and procedures so that all people working within the school are aware and stick to the same rules. Consistency is imperative. All adults working in the school would be : teaching staff, support staff, lunchtime supervisors, kitchen staff, governors, after school staff and temporary staff. There are many policies in schools that children and staff should be aware of.
Traditional methods of discipline force management to make all the decisions. Is the offense serious enough to warrant a disciplinary transaction? Given the seriousness, what is the appropriate level of punishment? Is the punishment for employee A similar to what we did to B and C in like situations? Then management caucuses, analyzes the available data, and decides what action is most appropriate.
It was at that moment I had to put my trust in a complete stranger, as they would take care of my child for the next seven hours. I would imagine the parents would contact the administration to seek additional information deeming the teacher as competent. As an administrator I would listen to the concerns of the parents. In addition, I would let them know that all teachers are observed/evaluated to ensure the students are receiving proper instruction.
Language: the language that teachers use has to be high level, which conveys a sense of professionalism that is honourable, moral and dignified. Professional judgement: the teacher should be able to place the needs of the students at the center of professional judgement. The teacher should be aware of his/her individual values, personal experience, commitment to authenticity, decision-making processes and work towards providing sound judgement. There is a school of thought which says that judgement grows with time and implies knowledge and wisdom, that teachers’ judgment improves with time. However, it is essential to ensure that all teachers possess a significant level of professional judgment.
