GF Teacher Placed on Administrative Leave

A Grand Forks middle school teacher was placed on administrative leave and could be discharged from his contract.

A Grand Forks Schroeder Middle School teacher has been placed on administrative leave and is facing a hearing to determine whether his contract should be revoked.

Cornel Kilber is an industrial technology teacher at Schroeder. According to the Grand Forks School Board's meeting agenda on September 27th, the board will contemplate whether to discharge Kilber for insubordination and/or "conduct unbecoming (of) a teacher." It is not clear what the conduct in question was that prompted the suspension. Kilber did not return phone calls to WDAZ Tuesday night.

The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, but is closed to the media and public. WDAZ will bring you any further information regarding this story as it becomes available.
