2. Involuntary: below are two types of involuntary terminations:
- APS may discharge you from your employment for poor performance, misconduct, excessive absences, tardiness, discrimination or other violations of APS policies. If your employment is at will, you or APS may terminate the employment relationship at any time and for any or no reason.
- APS may elect not to renew the expiring contracts of some employees. This is considered Non-Reemployment.
If you are remaining employed by APS but are transferring to a different position or location, an Employee Request (change) Form must be submitted to HR by your new supervisor.
In each of the above situations, ALL district, department, school, and/or outside agency (i.e. PTO) purchased equipment and supplies MUST remain at its original site. This includes but is not limited to:

Return of District Property
Any property APS issues to you, such as keys, uniforms, computer equipment, parking passes or vehicles, etc., must be returned at the time of termination. You will be responsible for any lost or damaged items. The value of property issued and not returned may be deducted from your paycheck. You may be required to sign a wage deduction authorization form for this purpose.
