Staff-Student Professional Relationships

The following sample School Board Policy is provided to encourage school officials to consider how to best ensure that all “staff” (which may include persons in addition to direct school district employees) are aware of expectations related to appropriate staff-student relationships and appropriate staff-student boundaries. The sample policy was drafted to coordinate with a related sample Administrative Rule (see below) that applies the policy to the narrower topic of “Electronic Communications between Staff and Students.” School districts are encouraged to view the samples as a starting point for their local policy development work and are free to modify the samples to better fit local circumstances. The samples should not be construed as legal advice.
