 In response to the teacher’s response, the head of the institution may issue an administrative warning or send the case to an agent appointed by the appropriate authorities.

5. Decision of the Agent

Following the preliminary hearing, the agent may issue one of the following decisions: no case to answer, administrative warning, or interdiction. TSC or the agent may interdict a teacher without a preliminary hearing in several situations.

6. Interdiction and Defense

 An interdicted instructor must submit a defense statement, together with a contact address, within 21 days of the date of interdiction. Cases are normally heard within three months after interdiction, and teachers who are experiencing delays may enquire.

During interdiction, authorities will pay teachers half of their income for cases including provocation, insubordination, infamous behavior, or carelessness of duty.

Keeping the teaching profession’s integrity and professionalism is critical for the well-being of students and the education system. When dealing with teacher misbehavior, the defined disciplinary procedures assure justice and due process.

TSC urges teachers to get acquainted with the Code of Conduct and Ethics and to maintain the highest standards of behavior in their critical role as educators.
