Ethics Hotline

Ethics Hotline: 1-855-400-6008 (Available 24/7)

The Comal Independent School District is committed to the highest possible standards of ethical, moral and legal business conduct. We believe that our foundation is built on personal beliefs, integrity and respect. In line with this commitment and belief, the District has established an anonymous reporting hotline. The hotline will provide school district employees and citizens with a way to report suspected fraudulent activity by District employees, vendors, contractors, etc. Allegations reported over the Hotline are evaluated and investigated. It is intended to be used to report serious concerns or questionable actions such as the following:

  • Unethical or unlawful
  • May lead to incorrect financial reporting
  • Are not in line with District policies and procedures
  • Serious improper conduct
  • Fraud, waste or abuse of resources
  • Misuse of grant money
  • Research fraud
  • Theft/embezzlement
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Procurement fraud
  • Threats to personal safety
  • Discrimination or harassment
 

For more examples please see local Board policy CAA here.

 

Informant's Rights

Informants may remain anonymous. The Comal ISD "Whistleblower" Policy (DG-Legal) protects informants who report alleged wrongdoing or acts of fraud from retaliation by the Board or any District employee.

 

How it Works

District employees and citizens may call the hotline at 1-855-400-6008, 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. You may remain anonymous by not disclosing your name or you can ask that your identity be kept confidential. If you remain anonymous, please provide as much information as possible to perform an investigation (i.e. name of person(s) involved, date(s), time(s), etc.). The hotline is also available to Spanish speakers. Another option for Fraud reporting is to complete the District’s "Fraud, Theft and Corruption Disclosure Form." To submit this form, please follow the instructions located on the top of the form.
