Discipline proposed for Bemidji teacher
The Bemidji School Board voted unanimously Monday night to approve a resolution proposing discipline for Martin Kesler, a fifth-grade teacher at J.W. Smith Elementary School.
The vote came after the board held a closed session Monday night for preliminary considerations of allegations or charges against an employee.
Director of Human Resources Jordan Hickman said Kesler is currently on paid administrative leave.
A letter will be sent to Kesler informing him of his proposed discipline by the school district. The letter is private data until final disposition of the proposed disciplinary action.
