Funds from Federal Tax Sources

Funds for educational purposes made available by the federal government will be accepted by the Sioux Falls School District providing the conditions of their availability are in harmony with the purposes and policies of the District and of state statutes.

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, national origin or ancestry, age, military/veteran status, genetic information or any other basis protected by law, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.

It is the policy of the District that no federal funds received by a contract, grant, loan or cooperative agreement may be expended to pay any person for influencing or attempting to influence an office or employee of any agency, a member of Congress, an officer or employee of Congress or an employee of a member of Congress in connection with any of the following covered federal actions: the awarding of any federal contract, the making of any federal grant, the making of any federal loan, the entering into of any cooperative agreement and the extension, continuation, renewal, amendment or modification of any federal contract, grant, loan or cooperative agreement.

Further, if funds from another source have been paid or will be paid to any person for influencing or attempting to influence in connection with a federal contract, grant, loan or cooperative agreement, the Superintendent shall complete and submit a Disclosure Form to Report Lobbying.

In addition, the District will comply with the provisions of the Hatch Act which limit the political activities of employees whose principal employment activities are funded in whole or in part with federal funds.
