  • Gross immorality;
  • Incompetency or neglect of duty;
  • Poor performance;
  • Unprofessional conduct;
  • Insubordination;
  • Violation of any policy or regulation of the school district;

The Superintendent will give notice of the intent to recommend suspension without pay or termination. The notice must specify the grounds for the recommendation, and inform the right to request a hearing.
