404.2 Nepotism

Nepotism is patronage bestowed or favoritism shown on the basis of family relationship. More than one family member may be an employee of the school district. However, no school district employee shall be involved in hiring a family member. The decision to employ more than one individual in a family shall be made on the basis of each individual’s qualifications, credentials and record.

It is within the discretion of the superintendent to allow one family member employed by the school district to supervise another family member employed by the school district subject to the approval of the board. No school district employee shall attempt to influence the evaluation or conditions of employment of the employee’s family member with anyone who serves in a supervisory capacity over that family member.

Family members for purposes of this policy include husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, mothers- in-law, fathers-in-law, sisters, brothers, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, daughters, sons, daughters-in-law, and sons-in-law.
