NEPOTISM

Employment

It shall be the policy of the Veazie School Committee not to employ as school unit staff any person who is a member of the immediate family of a Committee member or of the Superintendent

By Maine law (20-A M.R.S.A. § 1002(2)), a Committee member’s spouse is precluded from employment under any circumstances in any public school within the jurisdiction of the Committee to which the member is elected.

Supervision and Evaluation

No person shall be employed in or assigned to a position that is within the administrative supervision of a member of his/her immediate family, nor in a position in which he/she is supervised or evaluated, in whole or in part, by a member of his/her immediate family.

Volunteers

Under Maine law (20-A M.R.S.A. § 1002(2-A)), a member of the Committee, or spouse of a member, may not serve as a volunteer when that volunteer has primary responsibility for a curricular, co-curricular or extracurricular program or activity and reports directly to the Superintendent, principal, athletic director or other school administrator in a public school within the jurisdiction of the Committee to which the member is elected.

The Veazie School Committee encourages participation from the community at large and this policy is not intended to deter a Committee member or spouse of a Committee member from engaging in community service.
