Connecticut's Teacher Tenure Act & Disability Discrimination

Connecticut's Teacher Tenure Act provides that a tenured teacher may be fired for a "disability". However, any teacher that is fired pursuant to the Tenure Teacher Act enjoys the protections of the Fair Employment Practices Act. Consequently, for a board of education to terminate a teacher pursuant to the Teacher Tenure Act for reason of a disability, the board must show that the teacher was unable to perform the essential functions of her job with or without a reasonable accommodation.
