MADISON (AP) — The Madison School District has released additional sick notes given to Capitol protesters last year which show two more doctors provided the excuses the district deemed to be fraudulent.
Fifteen doctors who signed the notes have not faced sanctions from the state Medical Examining Board. The notes were written after hundreds of teachers called in sick last February, closing schools for four days. School district officials required the absent employees to provide notes documenting a doctor visit. The district docked pay from employees who didn’t have a legitimate excuse.
The protests erupted after Gov. Scott Walker proposed cutting collective bargaining rights for most state workers.
The State Journal says a committee of the board plans to decide next month whether to investigate additional doctors.
