  168.120.  Appeal by teacher, procedure. — 1.  The teacher shall have the right to appeal from the decision of the board of education to the circuit court of the county where the employing school district is located.  The appeal shall be taken within fifteen days after service of a copy of the decision of the board of education upon the teacher, and if an appeal is not taken within the time, then the decision of the board of education shall become final.

  2.  The appeal may be taken by filing notice of appeal with the board of education, whereupon the board of education, under its certificate, shall forward to the court all documents and papers on file in the matter, together with a transcript of the evidence, the findings and the decision of the board of education, which shall thereupon become the record of the cause.  Such appeal shall be heard as provided in chapter 536.

  3.  Appeals from the circuit court shall be allowed in the same manner as in civil actions, except that the original transcript prepared and filed in the circuit court by the board of education, together with a transcript of the proceedings had in the circuit court, shall constitute the transcript on appeal in the appellate court.  The board of education shall make available, to the parties, copies of any transcript prepared and filed by it in the circuit court and upon final determination of the cause in the appellate court the original record of the board of education filed as a part of the transcript on appeal shall be certified back to the board of education by the appellate court.  In all appeals from the board of education or circuit court the costs thereof shall be assessed against the losing party as provided by law in civil cases.  All appeals to the circuit court and appellate courts shall have precedence over all cases except election contests.

  4.  If the circuit court finds for the teacher, he shall be restored to permanent teacher status and shall receive compensation for the period during which he may have been suspended from work, and such other relief as may be granted by the court.
