Policy Alert: Staff related policies amended

Two sample policies pertaining to school staff members received revisions.


Modifications to sample policy GBI: Staff Gifts and Solicitations are substantial.


“After review of the sample policy, we made significant edits to acceptance of gifts by employees,” ASBSD Director of Policy & Legal Services Jessica Filler said. “In addition, changes were also made to the solicitations section of the policy.”


Changes to how staff requests for transfers are handled were also made to sample policy GCI: Professional Staff Assignments and Transfers.



The sample policy and regulation can be found online through ASBSD’s Policy Services website. For questions related to the policies, contact Filler at jfiller@asbsd.org or at 605-773-2513.

Policies of a school district, especially those negotiated with bargaining representatives for the protection of teachers, have the full force and effect of law, and legally bind the school district. Wessington Springs Ed. Assoc. v. Wessington Springs Sch. Dist., 467 N.W. 2d 101 (S.D. 1991).
