Teacher grievance procedures; hearing, three-member fact-finding panel
Purpose of legislation
Teacher grievance procedures; hearing; three-member fact-finding panel. Permits a school board to conduct a teacher grievance hearing before a three-member fact-finding panel consisting of one member selected by the teacher, one member selected by the division superintendent, and an impartial hearing officer selected by the other two panel members to serve as the chairman of the panel. Under current law, the school board has the option of appointing a hearing officer or conducting such hearing itself.
