Yvette Felarca Notice of Unprofessional Conduct and Unsatisfactory Performance

October 3, 2017

Yvette Felarca, the militant Berkeley United School District (BUSD) teacher, has a long history of fire-worth offenses, court documents show.

Felarca submitted as evidence the November letter and a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct/Unsatisfactory Performance (NUC/NUP)” from June 2016 as exhibits I and A, respectively, revealed during the case proceedings.

“Exhibit A” states Felarca “repeatedly solicited students to participate in protests against the proposed charter school in the District” and was issued a formal reprimand for her “improper involvement of children in this matter.” In 2011, the notice says, Felarca promised parents and students a trip to a rally at UC-Berkeley before obtaining permission from the principal to take them. The principal ultimately denied Felarca permission, because “it was an opportunity for [Felarca] to indoctrinate students and use them to support [her] own political agenda.” Felarca acted “unprofessionally toward [the principal] when she denied [her] permission.”

Felarca was issued another formal letter of reprimand in June 2012 for an unauthorized after-school trip where she left a student behind and later claimed he “wandered off,” according to the notice, which goes on to document numerous instances of “abuse of leave” over the years, during which time Felarca lied about sick and personal leave to attend political rallies.
