GBEBC - Staff Gifts and Solicitations

Emery County School District

Policy: GBEBC-Staff Gifts Solicitations

Date Adopted: 17 August 1988

Current Review / Revision: 4 February 1998

Teachers and other employees of the Board will not accept gifts from students except as such gifts represent tokens. Each token gift-giving is to be discouraged. The Board considers the writing of letters by students and staff members to express gratitude and appreciation to be more acceptable and appropriate.

All employees of the Board are prohibited from accepting things of material value from companies or organizations doing business with the school district. Exceptions to this policy are the acceptance of minor items which are generally distributed by companies through public relations programs.

Solicitations

No organization may solicit funds of staff members within the schools, nor may anyone distribute flyers or other materials related to fund drives through the schools, without the approval of the superintendent or his/her designee. Staff members will not be made responsible, or will they assume responsibility for the collection of any money or distribution of any fund drive literature within the schools for fund drives not sponsored by the school unless such activity has the approval of the superintendent or his/her designee. The Board expects such activities to be kept to a minimum. The Superintendent shall seek direction from the Board in instances where prior practice offers no guidance about a particular fund drive.
