KCSOS: Nothing that requires discplinary

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A teacher with the Kern County Superintendent of schools has been arrested for failing to complete counseling for DUI charges, but she may be able to keep her job.

38-year-old Brandi Lynn Sherman is a teacher with the Kern County Superintendent of Schools and has been convicted of three DUI's since 2011.

She is currently a teacher at the Community Learning Center, which serves 7th through 12th grade students, on 34th Street.

Sherman served a short stint in jail back in 2011 and was then sentenced to three years probation.

In August of last year, she was arrested for the third time, but returned to court earlier this week after failing to comply with counseling.

A representative for KCSOS said she is slated to go back to work after the summer breaking on August 26.

The superintendent went on to say that this is a personnel matter and they could not comment any further, but did say that in general there is nothing in the California Education Code that would require disciplinary action for a DUI and every matter is handled on a case-by-case basis.
