GCQA – Nonschool Employment By Professional Staff Members

The Board expects all employees to give the responsibilities of their positions in the district precedence over any type of outside work.

The outside work done by a staff member is of concern to the Board insofar as it may:

  1. Prevent the employee from performing job-related responsibilities in an effective manner.
  2. Be prejudicial to his/her effectiveness in the position; or might compromise or embarrass the school district.
  3. Raise a question of conflict of interest — for example, where the employee’s position in the District gives him access to information or another advantage useful to the outside

An employee will not perform any duties related to an outside job during his/her regular working hours or during the additional time that he/she needs to fulfill the responsibilities of the position; nor will an employee use any district facilities, equipment, or materials in performing outside work.

A Supervisor who observes that an employee’s outside work activities are adversely affecting his/her job performance should advise the employee to resolve the situation. If the employee
fails to promptly do such, then the supervisor shall make a report to the Superintendent.
