The purpose of this policy is to ensure that employees will avoid even the appearance of unethical behavior and that employees will not participate in any activity that creates a conflict of interest with their responsibilities at the school.


An employee must uphold the ethical standards of PACT Charter School and avoid all conflicts of interest.


The following will be deemed conflicts of interest. PACT Charter School employees will not:

  1. Accept gifts or favors in the course of or in relation to their official duties, whether directly or indirectly, including any payment of expense, compensation, gift, reward, gratuity, favor, service or promise of future employment or other future benefits from any source, except PACT Charter School.
  2. However, the acceptance of any of the following is permissible: gifts of nominal value; recognition plaques or similar mementos; reimbursement of pre-approved, actual expenses for travel or meals; honoraria or expenses paid for papers, talks, demonstrations, or appearances during non-work time.
  3. Use confidential information from PACT Charter School to further their own, private interests or engage in outside employment or activities that will require disclosure or use of such confidential information.
  4. Use or allow the use of school time, supplies, property, and equipment for their own, private interests or any other use not in the interest of the school.
  5. Use or attempt to use their official position to secure benefits, privileges, exemptions or advantages, which are not available to the general public, for the private interests of themselves, their immediate family, or an organization with which they are associated.
  6. Accept employment or enter into a contractual relationship that will affect their independence of judgment in the exercise of their official duties.
  7. Solicit a financial agreement for services with any entity other than the school when the school currently provides the same services or has expressed an intention to provide the services.
