Charter schools: Your rights as a charter school educator

Working at a charter school poses a number of potential legal issues for teachers. These schools are privately owned and independently run, which means they have their own rules to follow internally. The school still has to abide by regulations and rules set by the school district, however. Laws that apply to public and private schools are similar when it comes to drugs, alcohol and sex crimes; no matter where they take place, they're taken seriously and could result in problems keeping or getting teaching jobs in the future.

As a teacher or administrator, if you're charged with drunk driving, assaulting another teacher or student, drug possession or sex crimes, you need to seek representation and to develop a defense as soon as you can. Crimes against students and on school grounds need special defenses, and they can be some of the most difficult to defend yourself against. You are at risk of losing your job and tarnishing your reputation, but you still have options.

Whether you're facing felony or misdemeanor charges, you need to speak with someone who knows about your rights. You shouldn't have to face punishment like being fired before your guilt is proven. Seeking help may give you a chance to put together your case, so you can seek to be placed back on the job and even to receive compensation for inappropriate allegations against you.

Please check out our webpages if you want to learn more about your career related consequences when you face criminal or drug charges for activities at your charter school. You don't have to face this difficult time alone; there are people who can help you.
