ND licensing board to look into Hebron teacher case

BISMARCK, N.D. — The state board that licenses teachers in North Dakota will be looking into the conviction of a former Hebron teacher.

Jennifer Schultz was found guilty at trial this week of distributing alcohol to minors. She was found not guilty of sexually assaulting two students. She was sentenced to serve about two months in jail.

Schultz resigned her teaching position during the investigation. The North Dakota Education Standards and Practices Board will be determining whether she is able to teach again.

Executive Director Janet Welk tells The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/PgZDd2 ) that if the board decides to discipline Schultz, punishment could range from a letter of reprimand to a license revocation.

Schultz's attorney says she has four degrees, two of which are master's degrees in education.
