Print Policy
 

Appeals

Proceedings before School Law Tribunals and appeals are governed by Official Code of Georgia Annotated 20-2-1160, et. seq and rules of the State Board of Education adopted pursuant thereto.

The Board shall constitute a tribunal for hearing and determining any matter of local controversy in reference to construction or administration of school law. The Board has the power to summon witnesses and take testimony. The Board's decision in such matters will be binding on both parties.

Either party shall have the right of appeal to the State Board of Education; the appeal shall be made through the Superintendent in writing and shall distinctly set forth the question in dispute, the decision of the Board, a transcript of the testimony and other evidence adduced before the Board as true and correct by the Superintendent of Education, and a concise statement of the reasons of why the decision is complained. All hearings shall be reported at the expense of the Board of Public Education. If an appeal is filed, a transcript of the hearing shall be prepared at the expense of the appealing party.

This policy last reviewed 1/19/2010.
