PERSONNEL POLICIES GOALS
The goal of the employment policies and practices of the Alleghany County School Board is to promote the employment and retention of highly qualified personnel to effectively serve the educational needs of students.
No employee, contractor or agent of the Alleghany County School Board may assist a school board employee, contractor or agent in obtaining a new job, apart from the routine transmission of administrative and personnel files, if the employee, contractor or agent knows, or has probable cause to believe, that such school employee, contractor or agent engaged in sexual misconduct regarding a minor or student in violation of law. This prohibition does not apply if the information giving rise to probable cause

over the alleged misconduct and

or state law, including title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.) and the regulations implementing it and
2. A. the matter has been officially closed or the prosecutor or police with
jurisdiction over the alleged misconduct has investigated the allegations
and notified school officials that there is insufficient information to
establish probable cause that the school employee, contractor or agent
engaged in sexual misconduct regarding a minor in violation of law;
B. the school employee, contractor or agent has been charged with, and
acquitted or otherwise exonerated of the alleged misconduct; or
C. the case or investigation remains open and there have been no charges
