Education Code 4492
If a governing board has reason to believe that a certificated school employee suffers from mental illness impeding the performance of duties, the board may suspend or transfer the employee. In certain circumstances, a panel of mental health professionals shall examine the employee for fitness to discharge the job. The employee may have a personal doctor submit a report to the panel, as well. The panel has 10 days to submit a written report on the examination to the governing board, with a copy supplied to the employee upon request. If a majority of the panel determine that the employee should be permitted to return to work, the written report shall not be retained.
