If you are the subject of an investigation dealing with potential misconduct, the DOE may assign you to either an administrative office or to an administrative assignment within your school with a professional activity described in the contract other than small group instruction, one-to-one tutoring, or clubs where students are assigned.

If you are accused of sexual misconduct or of serious financial misconduct involving more than $1,000, you may be suspended with pay rather than be reassigned.

In most cases, the DOE will have to charge you within 60 days of the date that you were either reassigned or suspended, unless you are being investigated by the Office of Special Investigations. In that case, the DOE has to prefer charges against you within 15 days of the date that the Office of Special Investigations issues its report.

For the full policy on reassignment and due process, see Article 21 of the contract.
