GBK: Suspension

The superintendent may suspend certified employees with pay for any reason, including one or more of the following: alleged violation of board policy, rule or regulation; refusal or failure to follow a reasonable directive of an administrator; the filing of a complaint against the employee with any civil or criminal authority; the alleged commission of an offense involving moral turpitude; or other good cause.

If a suspension is imposed on an employee pending dismissal, the employee is entitled to pay until the employee has had an informal due process hearing with the superintendent or the superintendent's designee, who shall make a determination at the conclusion of the hearing whether further suspension shall be with or without pay.
