Ethics Review Panel
 
ABOUT THE ETHICS REVIEW PANEL

State law mandates that all Maryland school systems adopt ethics policies to establish standards of conduct for school system employees, school officials, Board of Education members, and candidates for election to the Board of Education.  (See, Annotated Code of Maryland, Title 5 of the General Provisions Article)  Each local school system’s ethics policy is subject to review and approval by the Maryland State Ethics Commission. Further, the State Ethics Commission provides guidance through its regulatory authority, as found in the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 19A.05.01.01-.03.

The Ethics Review Panel is an advisory body, appointed by the Board of Education to:  (1) create the applicable Financial Disclosure Statements, Confidential Ethics Complaint Reporting Form, and the Lobbying Registration Form; (2) review and maintain the Financial Disclosure Statements submitted by Board of Education members, Board of Education candidates, Board of Education employees, and school officials; (3) review requests for advisory opinions; and (4) review ethics complaints and make recommendations to the Board. 

The Panel’s guiding policies are found in the Ethics Code, Board Policies 8360-8366.
