Investigative Unit & Complaints

The Arizona State Board of Education rules in Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.), Title 7, Chapter 2, Articles 7 and 13, provide for the adjudication of disciplinary issues and regulation of the conduct of educators.

The Board is responsible for imposing “such disciplinary action including the issuance of a letter of censure, suspension, suspension with conditions or revocation of a certificate, upon a finding of immoral or unprofessional conduct” pursuant to A.R.S. §§ 15-203(A)(14)and 15-203(A)(20). The Board’s rules provide that certificate holders who violate any provision of A.A.C. R7-2-1308 are deemed to have engaged in immoral or unprofessional conduct and may be disciplined by the Board.

Reports of unprofessional conduct should initially be directed toward the Arizona Department of Education’s Investigative Unit.
