Any vendor or bidder who offers items in excess or in violation of the spirit of this policy may be disqualified indefinitely.
No person officially connected with or employed in the public schools shall be an agent or be in any way pecuniarily or beneficially interested in or receive any compensation or reward of any kind from any vendor for the sale of supplies, material, equipment or services to the district without the express prior written consent of the Board of Education.
