WRITTEN CODE OF CONDUCT - In an effort to be helpful to districts in meeting the contracting standards under EDGAR 80.36, here is an example of what one SAU has done, with the assistance of the Maine School Management Association, to ensure that both the circumstances of their SAU and the legal requirements are met.  This demonstrates how these requirements were incorporated into an overall structure by cross-referencing connecting policies.  Feel free to call the NCLB Clearinghouse at 624-6705 if you have any questions or concerns.
