519.  OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES

1.        Purpose

The Board recognizes that support employees do enjoy private lives and may associate with others outside of school for political, economic, religious, cultural or personal reasons. However, the Board and its supervisory staff have a responsibility to evaluate employees in terms of their effectiveness in discharging assigned duties and responsibilities.

2.        Authority

Therefore, when nonschool activities impact upon a staff member's effectiveness within the school system, the Board reserves the right to evaluate the effect of such activities upon the individual's completion of responsibilities to the District.

3.        Delegation of         Responsibility

The Superintendent or designee shall disseminate guidelines so that support employees may avoid situations in which their personal interests, activities, and associations may conflict with the discharge of their assigned duties.

4.        Guidelines

The following guidelines are provided for the direction of support employees:

  1. Do not use school property or school time to solicit or accept customers for private enterprises.

  1. Do not use job time for outside activities when there is no valid reason to be excused from assigned duties.
