The Marginal Teacher: A Step-by-Step Guide to Fair Procedures for Identification and Dismissal.
Lawrence, C. Edward; And Others
This book provides the school administrator with a comprehensive, practical approach to the teacher-dismissal process. The procedures are organized in a month-by-month and step-by-step format. The three-part process involves: (1) establishing and implementing a consistent, schoolwide teacher-evaluation process; (2) establishing consistent procedures to identify the marginal teacher and develop a specific assistance plan; and (3) collecting and preparing the documentation necessary for dismissal. Chapters offer suggestions for each of the following processes: defining the marginal and the self-assured teacher; establishing the teacher-evaluation process; beginning the evaluation process; identifying teachers in need of assistance; implementing a plan for intensive assistance; deciding on retention or dismissal; following through with the dismissal process; and preparing for the third-party hearing and bringing closure. Observation forms, checklists, a suggested timeline, and 34 sample documents are included. (LMI)
