Middleton-Cross Plains School Board to appeal ruling on teacher fired for viewing porn at work

Jeff Glaze

The Middleton-Cross Plains School Board will appeal an arbitrator's ruling that the district should not have fired a teacher who viewed pornographic images at work.

The board voted 8-1 to appeal the decision, which requires the district to pay more than $195,000 to the teacher, Andrew Harris, in back pay and benefits.

"I think that the board and the community feels that this is public policy that needs to be affirmed -- that this behavior is not acceptable in schools. This is not a case just about Middleton-Cross Plains School District. It's a bigger case than that. The board is committed at this point to going forward to make sure that this is changed," said School Board President Ellen Lindgren.

Between 30 and 40 people showed up for Monday's meeting.
