ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS REGARDING SOLICITATION BY BOARD EMPLOYEES
"Solicitation" may be generally defined as asking students to expend money or otherwise participate in activities that lead to the direct financial gain by such Board employees. While it is not possible to define all forms of solicitation of students, the following examples illustrate the basic principles:
- Solicitation of students to participate in non-school sponsored trips.
- The offering of services for pay directly to students in the school setting.
- Solicitation of students to participate in any activity in which such participation by students leads to the financial gain of such Board employees.
Solicitation of students shall relate to direct personal appeals, whether made orally or in writing. Solicitation does not include the placing of general interest advertisements in the school or other newspapers or the posting of notices outside of any of the school buildings of the Meriden Public Schools. In no event shall teachers or other employees conduct business for personal or financial gain on school property.
No teacher shall solicit students or offer services for students for non-school sponsored activities for personal or financial gain.
