SOLICITATIONS BY STAFF

In spirit, the School Committee supports the many worthwhile charitable drives that take place in the community and is gratified when school employees give them their support. However, the solicitation of funds from staff members through the use of school personnel and school time must be held at a minimum. Therefore, no solicitations of funds for charitable purposes will be made among staff members except with specific School Committee approval. Whenever such solicitations are made, no pressure will be exerted to obtain contributions even though the charitable purpose is one that the School Committee has specifically approved.

Furthermore, in order to protect school personnel from appearances of conflict of interest, no school employee may distribute or announce, or permit others to distribute or announce, any advertisement in the school system regarding the sale of merchandise or services not linked to permissible school fund raising without the permission of the School Committee.
