MOTION FOR REHEARING FILED:

CERTIORARI FILED:

MANDATE ISSUED:

Flora Brown has appealed the decision of the Chancery Court of Lowndes County to uphold her five-day disciplinary suspension from her duties as a teacher at Columbus High School East. The suspension was originally imposed by the Columbus Municipal School District Superintendent under the authority of section 37-9-59 of the Mississippi Code. Brown exercised her right to demand a hearing on the suspension. After the hearing, the Columbus School Board sustained the superintendent's action and Brown appealed to the chancery court under authority of sections 37-9-59 and 37-9-113, but without success. Based upon our review of the record and consideration of the applicable law, we affirm the decision of the chancellor.
