In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Ethics Code Committee Update

At the May 11, 2010 workshop, Mrs. Jennifer Gottlieb, Chairwoman and Mr. Kevin Tynan,
School Board Member, were assigned by the Superintendent to create a committee to craft a Code of Ethics policy.

Mr. Tynan and Mrs. Gottlieb came before the Board to give an update on the Ethics Code
Committee. The structure of the Ethics Code will include one set of rules for all employees, Board Members, and appointees. There will be additional rules for Board Members and their appointees. Board Member requested a list of the membership for this committee.

The subject areas to be included in the Code of Ethics are: gifts, no personal benefit,
relationships with lobbyists, relationships with vendors, obligation to report ethical breaches, and filing of frivolous complaints. Also discussed is the enforcement of the Code of Ethics by the Florida Commission on Ethics, creation of the ethics committee, and sanctions.

Educating all employees is critical. There will be an ethics hotline, ethics website and yearly
training with acknowledgement that training has been completed.

The committee determined that there are established policies by the School District, Policy
4009.11, Code of Conduct for Administrators and Policy 5202, Gifts to Personnel.

A Professional Ethics website is being crafted, http://web/ethis/index.htm, and once official it will be added to the Broward Schools website. The ethics website will include the above mentioned policies all in one location. This website also provides employees access to portions of the PowerPoint presentation from the Florida Commission on Ethics, frequently asked questions, and links to the Florida Commission on Ethics.

Board Member requested that the ethics code include information regarding employees running
for a Board position and staff having partnerships with other companies, including disclosure rules and requirements. Board Members are encouraged to contact Mr. Tynan with any recommendations for the Ethics Code.

Staff is requested to do an article on the Code of Ethics Committee, what has been done so far,
and the future of this committee.

Information about the Ethics Code Committee and website can be found on the eAgenda August
10, 2010 workshop.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
