September 2015 edition now online

The September 2015 Administrative Guide is available online. The New Jersey School Ethics Commission’s perspective on conflicts of interests, including definitions of certain terminology, have continued to evolve. This Administrative Guide will update previous Administrative Guides and examine the evolution and interpretation of the School Ethics Act.

In addition, the School News Briefs reviews four new cases. In one case, a teacher’s certificate was suspended for one year for posting negative comments on Facebook about a student’s name. In another case, the Appellate Division reversed the Commissioner, finding that a teacher, who had been on a paid medical leave for a three-year period as a result of a beating by a student, did acquire tenure.

The September 2015 Special Education Bulletin reviews two cases including one in which a Board was ordered to reimburse the parents of a disabled child for costs for unilateral placement of student at SINAI school.
