4035 - Conflict of Interest in Hiring

Policy 4035 Conflict of Interest title box

It is the belief of the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union, Bennington School District, Inc., Mount Anthony Union School District, North Bennington Graded School District, Pownal School District, Shaftsbury School District, and Woodford School District that the appearance of a conflict of interest should be avoided in hiring practices.

The appearance of a conflict of interest exists when a family member, indirectly or directly is in a position to supervise, evaluate or hire another family member. Therefore, the Board will not condone the hiring of anyone in a position where the person hired will be supervised or evaluated by a family member.
