Conflict of Interest

Rusk ISD

Conflict of Interest

Both state law and board policy require school board trustees, the superintendent and any employee “who exercises discretion in the planning, recommending, selecting or contracting of a vendor” to make a timely disclosure of a conflict of interest. Similarly vendors are required to disclose any relationship with a trustee or an employee, which constitutes a conflict of interest.

The district has identified a list of employees who exercise discretion in the planning, recommending, selecting or contracting of vendors. The list can be found here.

Forms to disclose a conflict of interest are available from the Texas Ethics Commission. Employees should file Form CIS with the Superintendent within seven days of learning of a conflict. Vendors should file Form CIQ with the Purchasing Department at risdbusiness@ruskisd.net.
