Background: In August 2020, the Board adopted Resolution 2021R-008 by Directors O'Halloran and Herndon. The Resolution called for the Administration, the Office of Accountability and Efficiency, and the Office of Board Governance to work collaboratively to establish a code of conduct for outside contractors and their employees. The draft policy and procedure presented for approval in this item are the result of that work.

As further directed, the policy requires the Code of Conduct to be included in all contracts (except those for non-instrumentality charter schools). Specific language has been included relative to contractor interaction with students. Possible penalties for failure to adhere to the Code of Conduct are included, along with a companion procedure for investigating alleged violations of the Code.
