ASSEMBLY EDUCATION COMMITTEE
ASSEMBLY, No. 2518
with committee amendments
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: FEBRUARY 3, 1997
The Assembly Education Committee favorably reports Assembly Bill No. 2518 with committee amendments.
As amended by committee, this bill requires a board of education to notify the State Board of Examiners whenever a non-tenured, certificated employee is dismissed for cause, and requires the State board to maintain a list containing the name and Social Security number of the employee and the reason for the dismissal for cause. A board of education or the superintendent of a school district or the chief school administrator of a nonpublic school could then submit to the State board the name and Social Security number of a person who has applied for a position in the district or nonpublic school, and the State board would indicate to the board or superintendent or chief school administrator of the nonpublic school whether the person has been previously dismissed for cause and the reason for the dismissal. The provisions of the bill do not apply to a school board employee whose contract is not renewed.
The committee amended the bill to allow a nonpublic school to access the information which is kept by the State Board of Examiners on non-tenured, certificated employees and to provide that any employee who submits a false name or Social Security number to a board of education is deemed to be in violation of N.J.S.2C:28-3.
As amended by committee, this bill is identical to the Senate Committee Substitute for Senate Bill Nos. 1170 and 1171 with committee amendments.
