1130 Policy_Conflict of Interest__Private Practice

The maintenance of unusually high standards of honesty, integrity, impartiality, and professional conduct by
School District employees is essential to ensure the proper performance of school business as well as to earn and
keep public confidence in the School District.
To accomplish this, the Board of Education has adopted the following guidelines to assure that conflicts of interest
do not occur. These are not intended to be all inclusive, nor to substitute for good judgment on the part of all
employees. Employees are expected to perform their duties in a manner free from conflict of interest consistent
with 19.59, Wis. Stats.
    A. No employee shall engage in or have a financial interest, directly or indirectly, in any activity that conflicts or
        raises a reasonable question of conflict with his/her duties and responsibilities in the school system.
    B. Employees shall not engage in business, private practice of their profession, the rendering of services, or the
        sale of goods of any type where advantage is taken of any professional relationship they may have with any
        student, client, or parents of such students or clients in the course of their employment with the School
    C. Employees shall not make use of materials, equipment, or facilities of the School District in private practice.
        Examples would be the use of facilities before, during, or after regular business hours for service to private
        practice clients, or the checking out of items from an instructional materials center for private practice.
    D. Should exceptions to this policy be necessary in order to provide mandatory services to students or clients
        of the School District, all such exceptions will be made known to the employee's supervisor and will be
        disclosed to the Superintendent before entering into any private relationship.
