• The Minnesota Department of Education has clarified the following scenario for school districts: 
     “Due to potential conflicts of interest, school employees must NOT direct or influence the activities of the groups listed.” (or similar groups)
    • Booster Clubs (i.e. Rocket Activities Boosters and/or Music Partners)
    • Parent-Teacher Organizations – PTO
    • School Foundations (i.e. Rockford Education Foundation)
    • Scholarship Funds (i.e. Rockford Dollars for Scholars)
    • Or similar groups or organizations formed that may donate funds towards student groups or school district
    Employees can join any of these groups as a non-voting, non-paid, ex-officio members/volunteers but they cannot serve on a leadership team, a decision making body or Board of Directors for any of these groups.
