RE:                  LIST OF TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS SUBJECT TO DISCIPLINE IN 2002

 

 

Oregon Revised Statute 342.203 requires the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission to annually circulate a list of all teachers and administrators whose licenses have been suspended, revoked or who have been reprimanded or placed on probation during the preceding 12 months.  If the decision to discipline has been appealed, the teacher or administrator’s name shall not be placed on the list until such decision has been sustained by the Court of Appeals or until the appeal has been dismissed.
