Require local education officials to remove any reference to an unsubstantiated DCF claim from teachers' personnel records and any other records relating to him or her.

  • Protect innocent teachers from false allegations by removing documents from teachers' files related to unfounded allegations of abuse or neglect that were investigated yet found to be unsubstantiated by DCF
