If you have any questions regarding Teacher Appeal Issues, please contact us for a FREE TEACHER APPEAL CONSULTATION.
Teacher Hearing.A lawyer can represent a teacher in an appeal case. Within 20 days of filing an appeal, the teacher is supposed to receive a copy of the DCFS file. At the hearing, DCFS has the burden of proving the accuracy and consistency of the report. The neutral administration law judge who conducts the hearing is a DCFS employee. Decisions of the Department following a hearing are subject to review by the courts. However, no new evidence will be taken in court, and a court may only reverse a decision of the Department if factual findings are against the manifest weight of the evidence or if there are procedural errors.
