Wednesday morning, the McLean County Public School Board voted to extend the suspension of Superintendent Terry Hayes. It’s not clear what Hayes was suspended for, but it would take at least four of five school board members to fire him from the job.
Wednesday, attorney Mac Johns said the board hopes it can reach a resolution with Hayes surrounding a complaint and allegations.
If the board doesn’t reach a resolution with Hayes, it can start the process of termination.
It’s still not clear what Hayes is accused of.
If Hayes is fired, the school board will need to give written notice to Hayes and get approval from the State Commissioner of Education.
Hayes’ suspension will now run through the weekend, until the school board meets again Monday at 1:30 p.m.
