Education - Office of Superintendent - Appeals Decisions

Identifier: 012-02-003

Scope and Contents

This series includes decisions made by the Public School Commissioner on appeals from individuals who have appeared before local boards, or from local boards appealing actions of local superintendents. Though other subjects are covered, most involve selection and removal of teachers or superintendents, disputes over location of schools, local school policies, or financial actions of local boards. This two volume set also includes background to the local board decisions on some few instances, but generally lists only the plaintiff and defendant, and the decision by the Commissioner. The cases are those for the years 1892 through 1919. The original records are handwritten but some typed copies have been included for clarification. The Commissioner made his rulings based on state laws and frequently his interpretation of it when a specific regulation was not provided.
