U.S. Supreme Court Denies Hearing Appeal in Madison Case​

ISTA Statement: U.S. Supreme Court Denies Hearing Appeal in Madison Case

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the state’s appeal to hear the Elliott v. Board of School Trustees of Madison Consolidated Schools case, leaving the lower court’s decision standing in favor of Elliott, which protects teachers’ tenure and due process rights.

"We are pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal in Joe Elliott’s case against Madison Schools. Elliott has fought this case since 2013 in order to protect teachers’ rights who may be subjected to a reduction in force. This is a great victory for Hoosier teachers who have made teaching a lifelong profession."
