Personnel
EMPLOYMENT OF RELATIVES

In order to preclude situations which could bring about a conflict of interest for members of the administrative staff, an employee shall not be appointed to a position where a member of his/her immediate family maintains supervisory or evaluation responsibilities for the position. Immediate family members may be employed at the same department or work location with the approval of the Superintendent.

The School Board recognizes that factors such as remote locations and a lack of qualified job applicants may justify the employment of family members of the Superintendent or Board.

An immediate family member of a Board member may be employed by the District if he/she is the most qualified applicant, has been approved by the Board, and such employment has received the written approval of the Commissioner of Education and Early Development. An immediate family member of the Superintendent may be employed by the District with written approval of the Board.
