rexas Supreme Court rules in
favor of ex-Lingleville teacher
AUSTIN-In a precedent setting deci-
sion June 19, Texas Supreme Court
Chief Justice John L. Hill, Jr. revers-
ed the decision of the Court of Appeals
and ruled that the Lingleville School
District violated the terms of the Term
Contract Non-Renewal Act when it ter-
minated teacher Jeanette Seifert in
The case, funded by the Texas Stqtp
Teachers Assocation, was the first
case of its kind to be argued in the
Supreme Court since the Term Contrat
Non-Renewal Act (S B 341) was
enacted by the Texas Legislature in
Chief Justice Hill ruled that the
school district did not give Siefert a
legally valid reason for non-renewal of
her teaching contract pursuant to the
Term Contract Non-Renewal Act.
Seifert was employed as a teacher
by the District from 1975 through the
1981-82 school year. In 1982 the District
gave Seifert written notice that the
Superintendent had recommended to
the District that her contract not be
renewed becuase of a “community
feeling of incompetence.” Following a
hearing, the school board voted not to
renew her contract. She was provided
with no further written deficiencies
The Chief Justice supported an
earlier ruling of the Commissioner of
Education that "community feeling of
incompetence” was not a permissible
reason for non-renewal and that there
was not substantial evidence in the
records of actual incompetence to sup-
port the District's decision
In his judgment Chief Justice Hill
wrote: “The statute is clear; it re-
quires the District to give actual writ-
ten notice of all the reasons for non-

did not give Siefert written notice that
it was non-renewing her contract for
