1240.01 - NON-REEMPLOYMENT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT

The Board of Education has an obligation to the citizens of this District to employ the professional leadership best trained and equipped to meet the educational needs of the students. It shall meet that obligation by retaining only the best qualified person as Superintendent of Schools.

If the services of the Superintendent are found to be unsatisfactory to the Board, s/he shall be notified by the Board President and given an opportunity to correct the conditions.

If his/her services continue to be unsatisfactory, the Superintendent shall be notified in writing by the Board President, as approved by the Board. Notification of its intent not to reemploy his/her services shall be given in accordance with the Superintendent's contract.

Reporting Professional Misconduct

Consistent with Policy 8141 and State law, the Board will file a report to the Ohio Department of Education, on forms provided for that purpose, matters of professional misconduct on the part of the Superintendent, as a licensed professional, including a conviction of the Superintendent of certain enumerated crimes and/or conduct which is determined to be unbecoming to the teaching profession. Reports of any investigation regarding whether or not the Superintendent has committed an act or offense for which the Board is required to make a report to the Ohio Department of Education shall be kept in the personnel file of the Superintendent. Should the Ohio Department of Education determine that the results of that investigation do not warrant initiating an action suspending, revoking, or otherwise limiting the Superintendent's license, the report(s) of any investigation will be moved to a separate public file.
