304.20 Authority to Suspend
Anticipating that disciplinary situations arise involving employees of the Ankeny Community School District which call for a variety of responses by the Superintendent/designee, the Board hereby grants the Superintendent/designee authority to suspend with or without pay any employee of this District.
Suspension without pay may be for a period not to exceed five (5) working days per disciplinary incident. Prior to deciding upon a suspension without pay, the Superintendent/designee shall meet with the employee to provide him/her notice of the allegations, explanation of other evidence, and an opportunity to present the facts from the employee's perspective. Within five (5) working days of receipt of notice of suspension without pay, the employee may request, in writing to the Superintendent/designee, that the suspension be reviewed by the Board. When the Superintendent/designee believes a longer suspension without pay is in order, he/she shall recommend the same to the Board.
An employee may be suspended with pay by the Superintendent/designee for the purposes of investigating circumstances which may require discipline or discharge.
