Superintendent: Vacancy in Office/Fines/Suspension/Separation

The School Board shall appoint a division superintendent within 180 days after a vacancy occurs. In the event that the School Board appoints a superintendent and the appointee seeks and is granted release from such appointment prior to assuming office, the School Board shall be granted a 60 day period from the time of release within which to make another appointment. The office of division superintendent shall be deemed vacant upon the Superintendentís engaging in any other business or employment during the term of office unless the Superintendent was granted prior approval by the School Board or upon the Superintendentís resignation or removal from office.

The Superintendent may be fined, suspended, or removed from office by either the Virginia Board of Education, upon recommendation of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, or by the School Board for sufficient cause. The Superintendent may appeal such a decision in accordance with applicable law. Nothing in this policy prohibits the School Board from taking other disciplinary action against the Superintendent or terminating the Superintendentís contract.
