Will The BOE Use The Fair Dismissal Law?

In these tough economic times, it's happening all over the State...Milford, Norwich, Wallingford, Lyme and more. Wherever Boards of Ed have financial woes -- and that means just about everywhere -- they are protecting themselves by giving pink slips to non-tenured teachers.  Not that they'll all be fired but if the notices aren't given, the lay-offs can't be done for another year and that could put a serious damper on plans to cut expenses. 

The "Fair Dismissal Law," Section 10-151 of the Connecticut General Statutes, provides that non-tenured teachers can be dismissed by nonrenewal of their contracts if they are notified by April 1.
