File GBI:Staff Gifts and Solicitations


This policy is intended to maintain the integrity of M.S.A.D. No. 75 and reduce the potential for any appearance that its employees have been improperly influenced in their decisions or professional judgment.

Employees of M.S.A.D. No. 75 are prohibited from accepting things of material value from companies, organizations or individuals desiring to do business with the District. The exception is the acceptance of token items that are generally distributed by the company or organization at conventions or conferences or through their public relations programs.

Teachers and other employees are not permitted to accept gifts from parents or students that exceed nominal value (ordinarily $20.00 or less). The Board encourages the writing of letters by parents and students to teachers and other staff members as a more meaningful and appropriate way of expressing gratitude and appreciation.

In-school solicitation of staff by sales people or other business representatives is prohibited. Such solicitation should be reported to the building principal.

No organization, including charitable or humanitarian organizations, may solicit funds from staff at school or through school electronic communications systems or distribute flyers at school or on school property except as allowed by Board policy.

Generally, the solicitation of money from staff for group gifts is discouraged except in special circumstances such as serious illness, bereavement, disasters, and mementos at retirement.
