    Non-RIF Dismissal
    The Director may terminate an at will employee at any time for any reason, subject to State and federal law.
     
    The Director is responsible for making dismissal recommendations to the Board consistent with the Board’s goal of having a highly qualified, high performing staff.
     
    Reduction in Force and Recall
    The Board may, as necessary or prudent, decide to decrease the number of educational support personnel or to discontinue some particular type of educational support service and, as a result of that action, dismiss or reduce the hours of one or more educational support employees. When making decisions concerning reduction in force and recall, the Board will follow Sections 10-22.34c (outsourcing non-instructional services) and 10-23.5 (procedures) of the School Code, to the extent they are applicable and not superseded by legislation or an applicable collective bargaining agreement.
     
    Suspension
    The Director is authorized to suspend an employee without pay as a disciplinary measure, during an investigation into allegations of misconduct or pending a dismissal hearing whenever, in the Director’s judgment, the employee’s presence is detrimental to DAOES.
     
    Any criminal conviction resulting from the investigation or allegations shall require the employee to repay to the System all compensation and the value of all benefits received by the employee during the suspension. The Director will notify the employee of this requirement when the employee is suspended.
