Teacher Certification Goes Online
"This form will not impact teachers from the standpoint of us unless they happen to be a teacher who is involved in an issue which the district is wanting to take their teaching certificate," said Mary Laffey of Columbia Public Schools.
They say any tool to help stop teacher misconduct is a step in the right direction.
"I'm sure teachers will support any effort that continues to assure families in this community and our state that their children are safe," Laffey said.
Some teachers say the new form is making them feel nervous only because they know nothing about it, and they are worried confidentiality may be compromised
"I would want to make sure that the right people have access to anything that gets on a form and not just anybody through internet hacking or anything could get information that should not be shared," said teacher Mary Ann Johnson.
But, now, teachers say all they want is more information about this new form. The form can be found under the law enforcement section of the Attorney General's website.
