Custodian keeps job ... for now

CES employee could be terminated

By Kellie Parkin

Chiefland Elementary School’s Head Custodian Dan Clark received notice Friday that he is facing termination of employment based on accusations of willful insubordination and timecard dishonesty.

Superintendent Robert Hastings asked the School Board Tuesday to suspend Clark’s employment without pay until the next board meeting when he would recommend termination.

Hastings said that Clark has neglected his duties, failed to accurately report his time, returned late after lunch, and repeatedly parked in the wrong place.

“These issues have been repeatedly addressed. Some 15 letters have been written to Mr. Clark,” Hastings said. “When you repeatedly do not park where you’re assigned and repeatedly arrive late to work – it’s insubordination.”

Although Clark is not a union member, Levy Educators Association President Cindy Roach spoke to the Board on his behalf.

“Look at the data,” Roach said. “It’s there in black and white. It’s not subjective.”
