Call to Action

Act Now to Oppose the Grounds for Employee Discipline Bills – (SB 760/HB 497)

MABE opposes Senate Bill 760/House Bill 497 because this legislation would remove the authority to discipline employees from the local board of education based on the superintendent’s decision – and transfer the final decision-making authority to an outside arbitrator.  

MABE opposes this legislation because it would adversely impact the ability of local boards to respond to employee misconduct consistent with the best interests of the students, the school system, and community.

(PDF version with legislator contact information) – Call and email the members of the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee to oppose Senate Bill 760; and the members of the House Ways and Means Committee to oppose House Bill 497
