Protecting Teachers Who Receive State Investigation Letters

Last updated on May 6, 2024

What happens if a Florida teacher receives a letter from the education department?

If you received a letter from the Florida Department of Education (DOE), chances are you have some idea what it is about. Most of the incidents originate at your district level. You may have been investigated by your school district and even faced disciplinary action.

However, districts are required to report certain infractions to the state. Even though you may have settled the incident with your district, you may still face additional discipline from the state.

What should a teacher do if they receive the DOE investigation letter?

Call an experienced teacher defense attorney immediately. The DOE letter may request documents, statements and more. The state will also want to receive the information in a very short time frame. What the DOE does not tell you is that you can hire a lawyer to defend you.

This is your livelihood and your profession. Do not take a letter of investigation lightly. The sooner you get an attorney who defends teachers involved, the better your chance at a successful outcome.
