Public invited to apply to serve on teacher discipline panels

B.C. is looking for people interested in serving on teacher disciplinary panels.

These panels will consider competence and conduct concerns and hear appeals of decisions to deny teacher certification. Members will be drawn from the soon-to-be-created Disciplinary and Professional Conduct Board but will include some outsiders.

“The purpose of non-board panel members is to provide input from persons outside the school system to strengthen public confidence in the hearing process,” says a notice posted on a new Education Ministry website.

Applications close Feb. 1 and full details can be found here.
