The Board of Education shall not enter a contract knowingly with any supplier of goods or services to this District
under which any Board member or officer, employee, or agent of this School District has any pecuniary or
beneficial interest, direct or indirect, unless the person has not solicited the contract or participated in the
negotiations leading up to the contract. This prohibition shall not prevent any person from receiving royalties upon
the sale of any textbook of which s/he is the author and which has been properly approved for use in the schools
of this District.
For the purpose of this policy "beneficial interest" shall be determined in accordance with 946.13.  Board members
and school personnel shall not accept any gifts or favors from vendors which might, in any way, influence their
recommendations on the eventual purchase of equipment, supplies, or services.
All sales persons, regardless of product, shall clear with the Superintendent's Office before contacting any
teachers, students, or other personnel of the School District. Purchasing personnel shall not show any favoritism
to any vendor. Each order shall be placed in accordance with policies of the Board on the basis of quality, price,
and delivery with past service a factor if all other considerations are equal.
