State Board of Regulations
School Board Policies for Teachers
Section 5-510 of the School Code gives the school board the authority to "....adopt and enforce....reasonable rules and regulations....regarding the management of its schools andthe conduct and deportment of ....teachers....". Such rules and regulations would be considered in judging persistent and wilful violation of school law, persistent negligence, incompetence etc.

Collective Bargaining Agreement
If the agreement covers temporary professional employees as well as professional employees, does the agreement make a distinction between professional employees (i.e. tenured employees) and temporary professional employees (i.e. untenured employees) in terms of substantive and procedural rights. If a distiction is NOT made, the job security provisions in the agreement probably apply to the temporary professional employee (untenured) as well as to the professional employee (tenured) since both are "professional" employees under the meaning of PERA ( Act 195 of 1970). Therefore, a temporary professional employee could grieve a dismissal.
