NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee education officials are reviewing whether a Nashville schools complied with reporting requirements when educators were disciplined or placed on administrative leave last school year.

The Tennessean quotes state board of education spokeswoman Elizabeth Tullos as saying officials will assess whether cases went unreported by Nashville public schools.

Nashville Director of Schools Shawn Joseph is required by law to report certain misconduct by educators who are suspended, fired or resign, including student-involved cases. A July law includes punishment for not reporting certain misconduct cases.

A Nashville school district list shows 19 teachers suspended, fired or resigned after district investigations, and two recommended for review of termination. One was reported to the state.

District spokeswoman Dawn Rutledge says a handful of cases should've been reported to the state, but weren't.
