In 2015, I was suspended without pay from a local school system. After five weeks, I was reinstated with pay, but my contract was not renewed. A report of a testing breach was filed with the state board. The state then lost my file for two years and flagged my license in April 2017. I have subsequently lost my job with another system because of the flag. State counsel recommended three months suspension retroactively served, but the review committee ruled for a one year suspension retroactively served; however, last week I saw the evidence against me for the first time since the report was sent to the state in 2015. As I believe the evidence is unsubstantiated, I have requested a hearing before an administrative law judge. As I am unemployed, there is no money for an attorney. Any help/advice is appreciated.
