The Committee recognizes that employees of the Hingham Public Schools have the same fundamental civic responsibilities and privileges as other citizens. Among these are campaigning for an elective public office, holding an elective or appointive public office, and supporting candidates or ballot questions.

However, when campaigning as a candidate, supporting a candidate or a ballot question, or holding a public office, it shall be considered contrary to policy for the school system facilities, equipment, or supplies to be used at any time, for there to be any involvement of system personnel during the work day, or for there to be an encroachment on the time of the work day.
