Ethics Policy

 

District employees and volunteers are considered public officials under Oregon law and are subject to Oregon Government Ethics Laws. When acting in their official capacity, employees and volunteers may not use District time, equipment, or services for their personal benefit, the benefit of a relative of the employee or volunteer as defined by Oregon law, the benefit of a member of the employee’s or volunteer's household, or the benefit of a business with which the employee or volunteer, a relative of the employee or volunteer, or a member of the employee’s or volunteer's household is associated.

When not acting in their official capacity, employees and volunteers are welcome to use District services with the same privileges and responsibilities as the general public.

They also may not use information they learned through their official capacity for personal gain unless that information is available to the general public.
