Employee Conflict of Interest

Public confidence in the impartiality, independence, and integrity of Sioux Falls School District employees is essential for the proper administration of the District’s affairs. To maintain this confidence, employees must not participate in activities that may or will conflict with their obligations to the District.

Employees of the District will not engage in or have a financial interest, directly or indirectly, in any activity that conflicts (or raises a reasonable question of conflict) with their duties and responsibilities in the District.

Employees may not use or attempt to use information not available to the public to gain a benefit for themselves or anyone else.

Where an employee perceives a conflict exists or is unsure as to whether or not a conflict of interest exists, the employee should discuss the matter with and receive permission from his/her supervisor and the Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services prior to engaging in the conduct.

This policy applies to all District employees.
