- It is the policy of Alpine School District to protect public interests and to maintain the faith and confidence of citizens in the integrity of the public schools and school employees by setting standards of employee conduct which preclude actual or potential conflicts of interest between their public duties and their private interests. It is the District’s intent to maintain high standards of employee conduct by prohibiting employees from improperly disclosing or using information, from using their positions to secure privileges or exemptions, or from accepting employment which would impair independence of judgment or ethical performance (UCA 67-16-1, et.seq.).
Uniform allowance shall be paid by November 1 of each year in the amount of $100.00 to all lunch employees who are on contract. For less than a full contract year the allowance shall be prorated. An employee must work at least 40 working days in order to be eligible for the uniform allowance.
Claims for salary and other benefit adjustments are limited to one (1) year prior to the date of the filing of the claim. The above time limitation applies to the employees who claim they were underpaid or to the school district for claims that employees were overpaid.
Alpine School District is committed to the maintenance of an environment which is free from any form of sexual harassment; an environment in which employees are allowed to work free from unwanted conduct or communication of a sexual nature; one which is in compliance with State and Federal laws dealing with this form of discrimination.
