4009 Restrictions on Employees Receiving Gratuities

An employee who, because of his or her employment by the school district, receives any bonus merchandise or gift with a value over $ 50.00 must disclose the receipt of such gift to the superintendent, who will then report that gift to the board. The superintendent, at his or her discretion, may require that the gift become the property of the district. No certificated staff member may not accept any gift which will impair the professional judgment of the recipient.

Employees are directed to discourage merchants from offering bonus paraphernalia in exchange for the school’s patronage.
