GUIDANCE IN GIFTS FOR STAFF
"We are fortunate in the Beaverton School District that students and parents/guardians hold our teachers and staff in high regard. This alone is a significant acknowledgement and sign of respect. At times, parents may wish to give a gift to a classroom teacher or other staff member. Doing so puts our staff in a difficult ethical situation. District employees are subject to Oregon ethics laws that govern the receipt by employees of gifts that may not exceed $50.00 from any individual giver on an annual basis. Employees must be aware of any gifts they are offered or received from any source. Parents/guardians should refrain from giving gift cards or other items of significant value to our staff. Instead, we encourage you to write a note of thanks to the classroom teacher or staff member. We appreciate your understanding and as always, your ongoing support. Thank you."
Our school counselor put together this amazing binder full of each staff member's favorite things!
All staff members filled out a questionnaire about their favorite things like favorite colors, restaurants, hobbies, etc. It was initially made for staff members, but then she figured parents and students might like access to it as well!
It is sitting on the bookshelf next to the volunteer login computer and all the staff are alphabetized by last name.
