P 3180 Political Campaigns

No contribution or expenditure of District funds shall be made directly by any Board member, employee or agent of the District to advocate, support or oppose any ballot measure or candidate for public office. This does not prevent Board members or administrators from making public appearances.

Reasonable expenditures may be made solely for the purpose of providing patrons of the District with objective information regarding ballot measures in order to inform voters concerning issues that directly affect the District.

Staff Participation in Political Activities

The Board recognizes that employees of the District have the same fundamental civic responsibilities and privileges as other citizens. Among these are campaigning for elective public office and holding an elective or appointed public office.

Any employee who intends to campaign for an elective public office will notify the Superintendent in writing at the earliest possible moment, of the office being sought and the decisions as to whether to continue employment, and under what terms and conditions.

The Board will determine the terms and conditions under which the employee may continue employment while seeking or holding the office.

No employee will use school system facilities, equipment or supplies in connection with campaigning; nor will the employee use any time during the working day for campaigning purposes. State law prohibits teachers from participating in the management of a campaign for the election or defeat of a member of the Board which employs such teacher.
