Policy 412.08

Support Staff Suspension and Termination

Support staff shall perform their assigned jobs, respect and follow board policy and obey the law. The superintendent or designee shall have the authority to suspend any support staff member from duty with or without pay pending an investigation of charges against the support staff member or for disciplinary purposes.

A support staff member may be dismissed for any reason, including, but not limited to, incompetence, willful neglect of duty, insubordination, reduction-in-force, willful violation of board policy or administrative regulations or a violation of the law. When the superintendent or designee determines that a support staff member should be terminated, all wages and other benefits to which that support staff member was entitled shall cease with the date of the official dismissal and upon dismissal the support staff member shall be paid in full all amounts due as of the date of dismissal.
