The New Jersey Code of Ethics for School Board Members Wednesday, July 22 at 11 a.m. It is essential that the conduct of members of local boards of education hold the respect and confidence of the public. Board members must avoid conduct which is in violation of their public trust or which creates a justifiable impression among the public that such trust is being violated. The Code of Ethics provides specific standards to guide school board members in their conduct. Join us for a discussion on the Code of Ethics – interpreting the ‘do’s and ‘don’ts’ to assist you in your governance role. Register Now
