Administrative tribunals will be held Friday morning for two more Dougherty County School System teachers named in the governor's CRCT cheating report.
Martin Luther King Elementary teacher Tara Mallard and Northside Elementary's Tiffany Randle will face disciplinary hearings beginning at 9 a.m. in the school system administration building.
The hearings, which will be held in the DCSS board room, are open to the public.
Sid Cottingham of Douglas is the hearing officer and the tribunal panel consists of former Georgia Professional Standards Education Ethics Director Gary Walker, Bibb County Board of Education member Wanda Walker and retired Wheeler County Elementary Principal Jack Willis.
Mallard and Randle are the fifth and sixth teachers to appear before the tribunal. Two weeks ago four DCSS teachers accused in the 2009 CRCT erasure investigation, agreed to 60-day suspensions without pay for their roles in the scandal.
After hearing the cases the tribunal will make recommendations to the Dougherty School Board, which will approve, amend or hand down a different decision on the teachers punishments.
