Britton Deerfield School District
Bylaws & Policies


An effective educational program requires the services of men and women of integrity, high ideals, and human understanding. To maintain and promote these essentials, the Board of Education expects all certified staff members to maintain high standards in their working relationships, and in the performance of their certified duties, to:

 A.recognize basic dignities of all individuals with whom they interact in the performance of duties;

 B.represent accurately their qualifications;

 C.exercise due care to protect the mental and physical safety of students, colleagues, and subordinates; and apply the knowledge and skills appropriate to assigned responsibilities;

 E.keep in confidence legally-confidential information as they may secure;

 F.ensure that their actions or those of another on their behalf are not made with specific intent of advancing private economic interests;

 G.avoid accepting anything of value offered by another for the purpose of influencing judgment;

 H.refrain from using position or public property, or permitting another person to use an employee's position or public property for partisan political or religious purposes. This will in no way limit constitutionally or legally protected rights as a citizen.

In keeping with the ethical responsibilities of the professional staff, the Board of Education requires that staff not engage in any romantic or sexual relationship of any kind with students of this District, regardless of their age. Professional staff should not provide alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, or any other contraband to a student.
