have been advised that I intended to make this recommendation.  If the board takes action, the teacher has the right under Connecticut General Statutes Section 10-151 to request the reasons for the board's action to nonrenew his/her contract of employment.  Further, depending upon those reasons, the teacher may be entitled to a due-process hearing to seek reconsideration of the board's decision to nonrenew the contract of employment.

I also recommend that I be authorized and instructed to communicate notice of this action in writing to the affected teacher and to respond for the board to any appropriate requests that may be forthcoming from the teacher or his/her representatives as provided in the Teacher Tenure Law.
