The Board recognizes that employees of the district have the same fundamental civic responsibilities and privileges as other citizens. Among these are campaigning for an elective public office and holding an elective or appointive public office.
Any employee who intends to campaign for an elective office will notify the Superintendent in writing. The Superintendent will meet with the employee to discuss the campaign, election, and service opportunities and problems. The Board shall determine the terms and conditions under which the employee may continue his employment as he seeks or holds public office.
The essential element to be determined by the Board is whether the activities proposed by the employee are compatible with the time requirements for fulfilling his responsibilities to the district.
In connection with his campaigning, no employees shall use school district facilities, equipment, or supplies; nor shall the employee discuss his campaign with school employees or students during the working day; nor shall he use any time during the working day for campaigning purposes.
