Policies GBEAA, "Conflicts in Staff Supervision and Evaluation," and GBEB, "Standards of Conduct," are before the Board for First Reading on proposed amendments. The proposed amendments to Policy GBEAA rewrite the policy, expanding the definitions of relationships between persons in direct or indirect supervisory positions that present conflicts of interest in supervision or evaluation and establishing disclosure requirements should such relationships occur. The amendments also add definitions of direct supervision and indirect supervision. The proposed amendments to Policy GBEB establish that employees who fail to make the required disclosures under Policy GBEAA are subject to discipline, up to and including termination. The proposed amendments were approved unanimously by three members of the Policy Committee on August 8, 2016 (one member was absent).
