Decision Date: 1980
Agency: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Synopsis: Tenure charges were filed by a Board of Education against a tenured high school department chairman for failure to perform assigned cafeteria monitoring duties and for insubordination for refusal to follow administrative directives. Prior to these two tenure charges, the Board demoted the chairman, allegedly because he refused to perform assigned cafeteria monitoring duties. The chairman challenged his demotion and the Commissioner of Education directed the Board to reinstate him to a position commensurate with his certification and former duties and to make him whole for monies lost during his illegal demotion. Two weeks later the two tenure charges which are the basis of this action were filed. The evidence showed that respondent willfully and continually refused to perform his assigned duties and refused to follow administrative directives. Respondent-teacher is permitted to retain tenure and all seniority as a teaching staff member, but forfeits his tenure as a department chairman or supervisor. Board is directed to assign respondent to a teaching position within the scope of his teaching certificates. James. P. Grane!!o, Esq. for Petitioner (Murray, Granello & Kenney, Attorneys) Edmund R. Bernhard, Esq. for Respondent (Bernhard, Durst & Diits, Attorneys)
