Mandatory Reporting of Misconduct. It is the duty of all employees to report to the Superintendent alleged misconduct by any School Board employee that affects the health, safety or welfare of a student.

If someone reports misconduct to you, be a Leader: Listen, Evaluate, Act Immediately, Document, Encourage and Report. Please read Policy 6.29 for additional information.

Whenever an employee feels that he/she has a complaint, every effort is to be made to arrive at a satisfactory resolution of the problem on an informal basis. When this cannot be done, employees not covered by a collective bargaining complaint procedure or alleging discrimination or harassment, can resort to the more formal procedures as provided by policy. See School Board Policy 6.35* for additional information regarding grievance procedures.

What Is Universal Availability/Meaningful Notice?
IRS regulations state that, "The 403(b) universal availability requirement provides that all employees must be given the opportunity to have elective deferrals contributed on their behalf, if any employee is given the opportunity to make elective deferrals." While there are some exceptions to this requirement, it is the recommendation of OMNI/TSACG that all employees, regardless of status (full or part-time) be permitted to participate in the 403(b) plan. In other words, any employee with wages reported on a W-2 should be considered eligible to make elective deferrals into a 403(b) account under the plan.
