The Education Standards and Practices Board will be reviewing and considering action against Kirsten Baesler and her former fiance Todd Tschosik.
Recently, Baesler was involved in an assault case against Tschosik.
The charge against Baesler was dropped just this past week.
The Education Standards and Practices Board waited to review Baesler and Tschosik until after the court determined what had happened.
Now, the review can commence.
Baesler is the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in North Dakota and is in charge of more than 100,000 students’ education in the state. She heads over 100 people in her staff.
Tschosik is a teacher at Bismarck Public Schools and has been on an improvement plan due to his absences from work.
He will be reviewed for his driving while intoxicated in December 2014 and an arrest in 2011 for a DUI, which he was charged with a lesser offense of reckless driving.
He also had charges dropped on a battery case from last summer in Florida with Baesler.
The Bismark School Board has not taken any action against him.
The Education Standards and Practices Board will review whether or not punishments should be carried out. They will examine whether or not personal problems can influence the work they do.
The review decision is expected to happen soon.
