Today, the 250th District Court of Travis County, Texas issued a final judgment in the case of a former Fort Worth ISD teacher, upholding the Board of Education’s decision to fire Georgia Clark.
Trustees voted in September 2019 to terminate the employment of the Carter-Riverside High School teacher who had used social media to ask that some of her students be deported, identifying her campus by name. In a unanimous vote, the Board supported the recommendation of Superintendent Kent P. Scribner who stated, in his professional opinion, the totality of Ms. Clark’s behavior warranted her termination.
The District is pleased that Judge Catherine A. Mauzy recognized the importance of the Board’s ability to make employment decisions in the best interests of its students and school community.
Fort Worth ISD does not anticipate the Court issuing any substantive opinion beyond the attached Judgment.
This decision may be appealed with the 3rd Court of Appeals in Austin, but notice will need to be filed within 30 days.
