References to Prospective Employers
For Current and Former Employees
All requests for employment-related references or employment history by prospective employers of current or former employees must be referred to a member of the administrative team. The administrator will either provide a reference in compliance with this policy or will forward the request to the superintendent.
If the school district is subject to a written separation agreement regarding a particular employee, the terms of that agreement will govern the district's response to requests for information, regardless of any written consent provided to the school district.
If the school district is not bound by a separation agreement and receives a legally enforceable written consent to release information, the district will provide the information authorized by that document. The school district may provide additional truthful information to prospective employers of current and former employees.
