Burke Education Law Alert
The California Court of Appeal recently ruled that dismissal of a teacher by the Hueneme Elementary School District based on charges presented orally was proper, even though the District’s Board of Trustees did not act on written charges. This case continues the recent trend of the courts and the Legislature to find ways to make teacher dismissals more streamlined and less costly.
