Amount of time after an unsatisfactory final evaluation a tenured teacher must be in formal remediation before being dismissed

Close Box

Methodology for Amount of time after an unsatisfactory final evaluation a tenured teacher must be in formal remediation before being dismissed

Formal remediation refers to the final process of the improvement process which carries with it possible employment consequences. The question is addressing cases where there was no improvement or insufficient improvement following remediation to justify either ending or extending remediation. Normally a teacher may be dismissed at the close of the remediation program, however, if dismissal occurs during the year, s/he is guaranteed a hearing. "Dismissal required" is synonymous with teacher "must" or "will" be dismissed or "must" or "shall" be recommended for dismissal. A recommendation for dismissal will normally require that the teacher receive a hearing.
