A. Payment of compensation to any certified school instructor employed by a local school board or by the governing authority of a state agency and payment of compensation to any certified school administrator employed by a local school board shall terminate as of the date, after a hearing, that a written copy of the decision of the local school board or the governing authority of the state agency to discharge the person is served on the person.
