Serving Schools, Educators And Parents

Person 3

There are an array of federal and state laws and regulations affecting nearly every moment of the school day. When violations occur, school boards rely on attorneys to protect their interests. Teachers, school employees, students and parents deserve representation as well.

Whether you are an employee with a question about your rights, or a student or parent concerned about the quality of education, the Shreveport education law attorneys at Weems, Schimpf, Haines, Shemwell & Moore (APLC) can help . We represent teachers, employees, parents and students in all manner of claims against and by school boards.

Teacher Hearings

Teachers who have tenure in Louisiana can't be terminated without a hearing. While teachers can choose to have a non-attorney represent them at their hearing, an attorney has the legal training and experience to ensure that your rights are protected. Our lawyers regularly represent members of the Caddo Federation of Teachers and other teacher unions in matters such as:

  • Tenure hearings
  • Disciplinary hearings
  • Termination hearings
  • Suspension hearings
  • Demotion hearings
  • Grievances covered by union contracts
