Fair Dismissal Appeals Board Members

About the Board

The Fair Dismissal Appeals Board consists of 24 members appointed from specific categories: six public school administrators, six contract teachers, six school board members, six must have no occupational affiliation with a school district. Each category must be further distributed by size of school district. One member from the Administrator and Teacher categories may be retired if the member was previously employed as an administrator or a contract teacher. 

Members serve a term of four years but also serve “at the pleasure” of the Governor. An individual member’s term continues to the completion of an appeal, including a motion for reconsideration. 

The board meets annually in October. The meeting is subject to the Public Meeting law and is open to the public. At the meeting the board selects one of its members as chairperson and another as vice chairperson.
