• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - February 2019


    Although parents have the constitutional right to direct the upbringing and education of their children, they do not have the unlimited right to access to school facilities. The February 2019 Administrative Guide is part one of a series discussing restrictions on the rights of parents and other individuals to access school facilities and school-related events. 


    In addition, the School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one in which the Appellate Division affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit by a former female teacher that alleged that her non-renewal was based upon pregnancy discrimination. In that case the board presented evidence of substandard performance to justify non-renewal. 


    The February 2019 Impact on Negotiations reviews two new cases including one case in which PERC denied a board’s request to restrain arbitration of a grievance challenging the board’s withholding of a teacher’s salary increment after teacher intentionally fabricated a student’s grades.
