Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. 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.

Broward School Board's Code of Ethics Policy Committee holds next meeting on Thursday at 1 p.m.
From Broward County Public Schools website
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.

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 way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.
Today is the day. Today is a celebration. Today is my day. Today, I hiked, I photographed, and I explored. Today I choose to love. Today I'm happy. Today I'm blessed. Today is my birthday. Today is a special day for you and me. #birthdaygirl #birthday #birthdaymonth #brazil #braziltrip #rio #theview #livingthelife #lifeisgood #morro #rio #praia #travel #miami #miamigirl #luckygirl #loveisintheair #justdoit #artist #photographer #photography #taiwan #beautiful #vacation #viajar #instagood #smile #dreambig #wishes #true
