Ethical Standards

Ethical Standards: Guidance for Superintendents and WASDA Business Partners

A few reminders from legal counsel for superintendents in their capacity as Public Officials. Wisconsin’s Ethics Standards generally prohibit school officials from accepting:

  • Items or services of substantial value
  • Items or services of value that could reasonably be expected to influence the official’s vote
  • Items or services of value that could reasonably be expected to influence official judgment
  • Anything of value that could reasonably be considered a reward for an official action

Note: A local public official may accept meals, refreshments and similarly related items without charge at a WASDA Conference or meeting event when provided, sponsored and/or sanctioned by WASDA – the event organizer. Note that businesses or other entities that may attempt to provide services or items of value that are not a registered and sanctioned part of the WASDA event may expose you to ethics violation. 

For complete information, please reference the Wisconsin Ethics Law.
