Teacher Fair Dismissal Act
A teacher and administrator can be fired for incompetence, conduct that interferes with the performance of duties; negligence; or other just causes following an investigation, according to the terms of the Arkansas Teacher Fair Dismissal Act. The process to terminate an employee starts with a written recommendation from the superintendent, including the reasons for the recommendation. The letter also must outline the right to an appeal before the school board. The school board has the final say on hiring or firing. A section in the law covers a suspension that prohibits the teacher from being on school property.
