The Richland Parish School Board may suspend any person in its employment when the Superintendent has reason to believe that cause exists for such suspension when the interests of the school district so dictate.


The Superintendent shall have the authority to temporarily suspend with or without pay, school personnel when, in his/her opinion, the circumstances necessitate immediate action.  The salary of a suspended teacher may cease as of the date the Board sustains the suspension.  If sufficient grounds for termination or suspension are subsequently not found, the teacher shall be reinstated without loss of compensation.


Upon suspension of an employee by the Superintendent, the Superintendent shall notify the Board of his/her action and shall refer the matter to the Board for consideration of appropriate action.
