DHA(LOCAL) - EMPLOYEE STANDARDS OF CONDUCT: GIFTS AND SOLICITATIONS

Gifts to School Personnel

Students and their parents shall be discouraged from the routine presentation of gifts to District employees on occasions such as Christmas and the end of the school year. Where a student feels a spontaneous desire to present a gift to a staff member, the gift shall not be elaborate or unduly expensive. The Board shall welcome and, in most circumstances, consider more appropriate the writing of letters to staff members expressing gratitude or appreciation.

The Superintendent shall seek the active cooperation of the Parent-Teacher Association in the execution of this policy.

Soliciting and Selling

Employees of the District are prohibited from using the class rolls or other records to obtain addresses of students and/or parents for prospects to sell or offer to sell any materials or products. [See DBD]
