Report Card

In an unusual move, a tenured Billings middle school teacher was fired by School District 2 on Wednesday.  KTVQ.com reports that Mark Kramlich, a history teacher in the district since 2008, was terminated by the board of trustees for poor performance.  The four hour hearing at the Lincoln Center reviewed his performance.

Recent evaluations noted poor performance and lack of corrective action to his teaching.  The district also received complaints from parents and students.  Kramlich alleges workplace bullying by school administrators and SD2 Superintendent Terry Bouck.  An investigation showed the claims did not have merit.

He was transferred to Medicine Crow Middle School last year, at his own request.  Medicine Crow Principal Nikki Hoffman testified that he is not the type of teacher they want in the district.  The teacher’s union chose not to represent Kramlich for the hearing.
