3140 - TERMINATION AND RESIGNATION

TERMINATION

The employment contract of a professional staff member may, upon a majority vote of the Board of Education, be suspended and/or terminated for violation of Board policies and in accordance with the criteria and procedures set forth in the Civil Service rules, Ohio revised code, and/or applicable terms of any collectively-bargained agreement, as appropriate.

A classified staff member under contract may resign by filing a written resignation with the Treasurer or the Superintendent at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of the resignation, unless an earlier date is permitted by the Board.

A resignation, once accepted by the Treasurer, Director of Human Resources, or the Superintendent, on behalf of the Board, may not then be rescinded.

Reporting Professional Misconduct

The Superintendent will file a report to the Ohio Department of Education, on forms provided by the Department for that purpose, matters of professional misconduct on the part of certain professional employees who are also licensed by the Ohio Department of Education (e.g., aides with a permit, paraprofessionals with a license, and those individuals who do not hold a valid educatorís license but who are employed by the Board under a Student Activity Permit), in those specific circumstances set forth in State law and Policy 8141, including a conviction of the staff member of certain enumerated crimes and/or in conjunction with the non-renewal or termination of a licensed staff member, or resignation by a licensed staff member under threat of same and/or during the course of an investigation, for conduct which is determined to be unbecoming to the teaching profession.

Reports of any investigation regarding whether or not a licensed professional staff member has committed an act or offense for which the Superintendent is required to make a report to the Ohio Department of Education shall be kept in the personnel file of the professional staff member. Should the Ohio Department of Education determine that the results of that investigation do not warrant initiating an action suspending, revoking, or otherwise limiting that professional staff member's license or permit, the report(s) of any investigation will be moved to a separate public file.
