SB49,1,3 1An Act to renumber 115.31 (1) (c); and to create 115.31 (1) (c) 2. and 115.31 (2m)
2of the statutes; relating to: revocation for immoral conduct of a license issued
3by the Department of Public Instruction.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) may, after
written notice of the charges and an opportunity for defense, revoke any license
granted by DPI for incompetency or immoral conduct on the part of the licensee.
Current law defines "immoral conduct" as conduct that is contrary to commonly
accepted moral or ethical standards and that endangers the health, safety, welfare,
or education of any pupil.
This bill provides that "immoral conduct" includes the intentional use of an
educational agency's equipment to download, view, or distribute pornographic
material in violation of the educational agency's policy.
The bill directs DPI to initiate proceedings to revoke a license if the licensee is
dismissed or his or her contract is not renewed based in whole or in part on evidence
that the licensee engaged in immoral conduct, as described in the bill.
The bill also directs DPI to post the name of the licensee and the results of the
revocation proceeding on its Internet site.

For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
