Ethical Standards: Meeting the Regulations as School District Staff and Vendors
School district employees are public employees required to abide by a strict code of ethics. Ethics codes prohibit officials from accepting:
- Items or services of substantial value.
- Anything of value that could reasonably be expected to influence the official's vote.
- Anything of value that could reasonably be considered a reward for official action.
A local public official may accept meals, refreshments and the like without charge that are provided, sponsored, and/or sanctioned by the conference organizer.
WASBO encourages you to familiarize yourself with Wisconsin's ethics laws.
