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.
