Board Cracking Down On Teacher Crime

KSAL StaffAugust 9, 2013

The Kansas State Board of Education will consider disciplinary action next week against six teachers who have been convicted of criminal activity, an usually large number for one meeting.

Cheryl Whelan, attorney for the State Department of Education, says the board is pursuing school districts that are not reporting criminal activity by teachers and administrators.

Four of the six teachers were convicted of sexual improprieties with minors; one stole an instrument from the school and the sixth was convicted of fraud.

The board also will consider denying the application for a new license from a man convicted of marijuana possession.

Whelan says that school districts and local prosecutors have been reminded they must report criminal cases to state teaching licensing officials.
