Abstract: The problem of dismissal of noncertificated staff for boards of education and school administrators is a relatively recent occurrence. Declining enrollments and determined, economy-minded voter-taxpayers are forcing educators to dismiss staff due to reductions in budgets. While teacher contracts and tenure laws prescribe dismissal procedures for professional staff, a void exists for procedures on dismissal of noncertificated staff. This study presents an historical perspective of the legal aspects of dismissal of noncertificated staff. A legal background is presented for the analysis of court decisions concerning dismissal of noncertificated staff in six major areas: (1) reduction in force, (2) incompetency, (3) insubordination, (4) neglect of duty, (5) immorality and (6) disability.
