Dismissal Hearing For Mather Delayed

From Staff And Wire Reports

The Coeur d’Alene School Board has rescheduled a dismissal hearing for teacher Paul Mather.

Originally set for Tuesday, it will be held March 10 in the administration office, according to school district attorney Charles Dodson.

The board will decide if Mather is guilty of professional ethics violations. Five female students have accused him of fondling them. He was acquitted on two criminal charges of sexual abuse.

Mather has been suspended since June from Canfield Middle School. , DataTimes
