Description - How to Handle Staff Misconduct by C. Edward Lawrence

Praise for the First Edition: 'Whilst a wealth of material on disciplinary procedures already exists in this country...commentaries and advice are relatively short. In this very helpful manual Lawrence and Vachon...[provide] a useful companion piece to anything...schools have on their shelves...The authors know their subject, from long and varied careers in education involving between them positions of headteacher, adviser, governor [and] school administrator...they have perceived a need among school administrators for detailed help based on legal requirements, natural justice, common sense and best practice. A list of all the manual's sample documents at the beginning...sets the practical tone of the whole...As benefits a manual, it is succinct and direct in style...the language used here is simple and refreshingly light on technical terms...the subject matter and arguments are immediately transferable to our own situation. The print is easy on the eye and a variety of type-sets makes the processing and absorption of the material easy' - Educational Management and Administration In clearly delineated sections, How to Handle Staff Misconduct, Second Edition, offers strategies that include managing excessive tardiness, insubordination, misconduct requiring suspension, and even criminal behaviors. Each section includes an outline of principal responsibilities, and common errors that can interfere with a successful intervention.

Author Biography - C. Edward Lawrence

C. Edward Lawrence, president of the Lawrence Educational Consulting Group, has advised many school districts on how to prepare and win unsatisfactory staff member evaluation and misconduct cases. Dr. Lawrence has nearly 30 years of experience in the field of education-he has served as a teacher, principal, assistant superintendent, author, and professor. For the past twelve years, Dr. Lawrence has inspired future educators as a Clinical Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education from West Virginia State University, a master's degree in guidance and counseling from the Marquette University, a certificate in administrative leadership, and a Ph.D. in urban education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Before his current position, he was the assistant superintendent for a large urban school district where he had an extensive educational career in public education. He served as a teacher, counselor, team leader, and assistant principal at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, as principal at the elementary and middle school level, as director of alternative programs, and as a community superintendent. In addition, he served as a hearing officer for unsatisfactory teacher evaluations, second-step misconduct, and immediate teacher suspensions. He was an adjunct instructor in the Department of Administrative Leadership teaching courses in clinical supervision and critical issues-including staff misconduct and evaluating the marginal teacher. Dr. Lawrence is first author of the following books: The Marginal Teacher: A Step-by-Step Guide to Fair Procedures for Identification and Dismissal (1993) (2nd edition 2001); How to Handle Staff Misconduct: A Step-by-Step Guide (1995) (2nd edition 2003); and The Incompetent Specialist: How to Evaluate, Document Performance, and Dismiss School Staff (1996).
