6-17-106 Insult or Abuse of a Teacher

September 04, 2015

The Dermott School District would like to remind all patrons of Arkansas Law 6-17-106 - Insult or Abuse of a Teacher and to notify all patrons that this law will be strictly enforced beginning 9/4/2015. The reason for this is that we must provide a safe and secure learning environment for all of our students.

This law reads as follows:

It is unlawful during regular school hours and in a place where a public school employee is required to be in the course of his or her duties for any person to address a public school employee using language that in its common acceptation (understanding) is calculated to:

a) cause a breach of the peace;
b) materially and substantially interfere with the operation of the school; or 
c) arouse the person to whom it is addressed to anger to the extent likely to cause imminent retaliation.

A person who violates this section shall be guilty of a violation and upon conviction be liable for a fine of not less than one hundred dollars ($100) nor more than one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500).

Each school district shall report to the Department of Education any prosecutions within the school districts under this section
