7/30/13 Rules for hiring family membersby Ann Sutherland on 07/30/13
A reader asked for the rules for hiring family members of board members or superintendent. Here is the response:
Board policy DBE(Local) says The District shall not employ any person who is related by blood within the third degree, or by marriage within the second degree, to
a member of the Board or the Superintendent. [See DBE (EXHIBIT)] This rule does not apply to an employee who has been continuously employed for a period of one year prior to the election or appointment of the officials named.
State law defines these degrees, posted at
http://pol.tasb.org/Policy/Download/1101?filename=DBE(XHIBIT).pdf. Basically, children or parents or spouses are within the first two degrees.
I hope this helps.
