401.03 Nepotism

No District employee shall directly supervise a member of his or her immediate family. An “immediate family member” is the employee’s spouse, child, significant other, sibling, ward, parent, son or daughter in-law, or comparable relative of a spouse or significant other. The Superintendent/ designee in his/her discretion may allow a District employee to supervise a non-immediate family member.

Exceptions to this policy must be approved in writing by the Superintendent. In no case shall an employee evaluate an immediate family member.

No District employee, whether or not related to another District employee shall be given preference treatment unrelated to that person’s qualifications, credentials, and/or record.
