7315 Confidential Information

Employees have an absolute duty to maintain the confidentiality of records as required by law. Employees, by the nature of their occupation, are exposed to confidential information which should not be repeated or discussed except with those recognized by law as having a right to the information. Any employee who is not sure whether particular information may be protected by state or federal confidentiality laws should seek clarification from his or her immediate supervisor or the superintendent’s designee. Where violations occur, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
