Code of Ethics

 

Faculty Members and Staff of The Rock Church and The Rock Academy are required to be of good moral character and must adhere to a code of ethics.   Our ultimate goal is to glorify God and fulfill His purpose.  Our Standard of Ethics and training concerning behavior, ethics, policies and procedures will lead us to the achievement of this goal.

 

All instructional personnel and administrators are required, as a condition of employment, to complete training on these standards of ethical conduct  annually and to complete a Child Abuse Awareness Course every 2 years.
