Bismarck Schools Begin Process To Fire Teacher

Posted: Updated:

The Bismarck School District has begun the process of firing a teacher accused of having sex with a student. 

The School Board held a special meeting Tuesday and voted unanimously to immediately suspend 34-year-old Susan Duursma without pay.

Superintendent Tamara Uselman says the board will now work with its attorney on setting up a hearing before an administrative law judge.

Duursma is accused of a sex act with a 15-year-old boy three times between March and July, in her home and in a vehicle.

The Wachter Middle School physical education teacher faces charges of corrupting or soliciting a minor. Her attorney says she will plead not guilty and eventually will tell her side of the story.
