Such notice shall specify the nature of the activity protected, and the times, dates and places of such activity;

(b) the hearing officer provided for by K.S.A. 72-2253, and amendments thereto, shall thereupon be selected and shall decide if there is substantial evidence to support the teacher's claim that the teacher's exercise of a constitutionally protected right was the reason for the nonrenewal;

(c) if the hearing officer determines that there is no substantial evidence to substantiate the teacher's claim of a violation of a constitutionally protected right, the board's decision to not renew the contract shall stand;

(d) if the hearing officer determines that there is substantial evidence to support the teacher's claim, the board shall be required to submit to the hearing officer any reasons which may have been involved in the nonrenewal;

(e) if the board presents any substantial evidence to support its reasons, the board's decision not to renew the contract shall be upheld.
