United States Third Circuit

Connelly v. Steel Valley School District, 11-4206

In 1983 action challenging defendant-school district's failure to fully credit plaintiff's out-of-state teaching experience in setting his salary, district court's grant of defendant's motion to dismiss is affirmed, where: 1) rational basis review applies to the experienced-based classification because it does not implicate a fundamental right; 2) it does not violate the Constitution for defendant to base its teacher salaries, in part, on prior in-state teaching experience; and 3) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying plaintiff leave to amend his complaint.
