1. That it is proposed that Laurie Hommerding and Angela Haynes, teachers of said school district, be placed on unrequested leave of absence without pay or fringe benefits, effective at the end of the 2017-2018 school year on June 30, 2018, pursuant to M.S. 122A.40, subdivision 11*.

2. That written notice be sent to said teacher regarding the proposed placement on unrequested leave of absence without pay or fringe benefits as provided by law and said notice shall include a date for hearing if requested and be in substantially the following form:

NOTICE OF PROPOSED PLACEMENT ON UNREQUESTED LEAVE OF

ABSENCE AND NOTICE OF HEARING DATE, IF REQUESTED

Laurie Hommerding and Angela Haynes:

(separate notices will be sent)

You are hereby notified that at the __Regular__ meeting of the School Board of Independent School District No. 745 held on April 11, 2018 consideration was given to your placement on unrequested leave of absence without pay or fringe benefits as a teacher of Independent School District No. 745, and a resolution was adopted by a majority vote of the Board, proposing your placement on unrequested leave of absence effective at the end of the 2017-2018 school year on June 30, 2018, pursuant to Minnesota Statues 122A.40, subdivision 10 and Article _X_, Section _7_ of the current Master Agreement between the School District and the exclusive representative upon the grounds described in said statute and which are specifically as follows:

Financial Limitations

Under the provisions of the law, more specifically Minnesota Statutes 122A.40, subdivision 7, you are entitled to a hearing before the school board provided that you make a request in writing within fourteen days after receipt of this notice. If no hearing is requested within such period, it shall be deemed acquiescence by you to the school board’s proposed action.

You are also advised that if you are an honorably discharged veteran as defined by Minnesota Statutes 197.447, you may have certain rights relating to your placement on unrequested leave of absence/layoff under the Veterans Preference Act (Minnesota Statutes 197.46 and 197.481), based on recent amendments to the Veterans Preference Act. In accordance with the Veterans Preference Act, you may have the right to either petition the district court for a writ of mandamus or the Commissioner of Veterans Affairs to determine whether your placement on unrequested leave of absence/layoff was taken in good faith. If you wish to pursue either of these remedies, you must do so within sixty (60) days of receipt of this notice. Your failure to do so within sixty (60) days of receipt of this notice shall constitute a waiver of any right you may have to contest your placement on unrequested leave of absence/layoff under the Veterans Preference Act.

You are further advised that if you are an honorably discharged veteran, the School District’s position is that, under the recent amendments to the Veterans Preference Act, you are entitled to either a hearing on your proposed placement on unrequested leave of absence pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 122A.40, or either of the remedies under the Veterans Preference Act, but not both. Therefore, the School District’s position is that you must elect to proceed under either Minnesota Statutes 122A.40 or the Veterans Preference Act. Once such an election is made and assuming that it is made within the applicable time period set out above, you waive any right to proceed under the process not elected. In the event that you elect to proceed under the Veterans Preference Act, you must provide the School District with a DD Form 214 within the relevant time period to establish your veteran status.

Yours very truly,

SCHOOL BOARD OF INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 745
