SUSPENSION, DISMISSAL OR OTHER DISCIPLINE OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF MEMBERS
A teacher may be suspended for any of the following reasons:
1. Insubordination, immoral character, or conduct unbecoming a teacher.
2. Inefficiency, incompetency, physical or mental disability or neglect of duty.
3. Failure to maintain certification as required by law.
Such suspension shall become effective only after filing of charges and appropriate hearings. However, the Superintendent may, if he/she deems it in the best interest of the students or the school system to do so, remove a teacher without loss of pay, until the Board of Education can be informed and formal proceedings instituted.
