Bylaw - 0133 Judicial

The School Board may assume jurisdiction over any dispute or controversy arising within this Corporation and concerning any matter in which authority has been vested in the Board by statute, rule, a contract, or policy of this Board.

In furtherance of its adjudicatory function, the Board may hold hearings which shall offer the parties to a dispute, on notice duly given, a fair and impartial forum for the resolution of the matter.

Beyond the basic requirements of due process, a hearing may vary in form and content in line with the severity of the consequences which may flow from it, the degree of difficulty of establishing findings of fact from conflicting evidence, the impact of the Board's decision on the School Corporation, and any statutory or regulatory requirements.
