FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEFORMER PRINCIPAL FINED $2,500 FOR APPEARING BEFORE THENEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION WITHIN ONEYEAR OF THE END OF HER DOE EMPLOYMENT.
The New York City Conflicts of Interest Board (the “Board”)
hasconcluded a settlement with a former Principal who appeared before the NewYork City Department
of Education (“DOE”) within one year of the end of her 
 DOE employment.The former Principal acknowledged that, after leaving DOE in June 2010,she began working at a firm that does business with DOE, specifically byoperating a public school in Brooklyn. Throughout the 2010-2011 school year,the former Principal regularly communicated with DOE staff at that public schoolto provide technical assistance and program development support on behalf of herfirm, and communicated with the DOE Office of Portfolio Development about
her firm’s proposal to open a second school, which proposal was later withdrawn.
The former Principal admitted that her
conduct violated the City of New York’s
conflicts of interest law, which prohibits a former public servant from appearing
 before that public servant’s former agency within one year of terminating
employment with the agency.The Board fined the former Principal $2,500. (A copy of the dispositionis attached.) In setting the amount of the fine, the Board took into account thatthe former Principal had reported her own conduct to the Board. Without the
Principal’s affirmative and voluntary act in reporting her own violations, the fine
imposed upon her would have been significantly higher.The Board took the occasion of this disposition to remind public servantsthat, once they leave City service, they are prohibited from appearing on behalf of their new employers before their former City agencies within one year of the date
of the termination of their City service. “Appearing” consists of in
-personmeetings plus any communications by letter, phone, facsimile, or e-mail,including
a “cc” on a letter or an e
-mail. Public servants who have any questions
about the City’s conflicts of interest law are urged to contact the Board, which
can be reached at (212) 442-1400.
