Fraud, Waste, Abuse & Crime

All employees should be alert for any indication of fraud, financial impropriety, or irregularity within their area of responsibility.  Any employee who suspects fraud, impropriety, or irregularity should immediately report those suspicions to his/her immediate supervisor and/or the Superintendent or designee.

Employees and outside persons may also anonymously report any suspected instances of fraud, impropriety, or irregularity by calling the WeTip 24/7 hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (1-800-782-7463) or go to the WeTip website.


All schools have been inspected for the presence of asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM). All friable ACBM has been either encapsulated or removed. Non-friable materials are periodically inspected to ensure they remain in good condition and do not pose a health hazard to staff or students.

The District provides annual notifications for each school site to employee and parent groups. To view your school's notification letter, please click the Asbestos Notification Letters link in the Related Documents section to the right.

Americans With Disabilities Act

The District endeavors to provide equal access to all of its programs, services, and activities. If you need special assistance, accommodations, or other modifications to participate in any of the District's programs, services, activities, or public meetings, please contact the school or the District's ADA coordinator, Douglas Gilbert.

Safety Committees

Each school has a safety committee with representatives from certificated and classified staff. The committee is chaired by an assistant principal, who also sits on the District Safety Committee.

Both the school and District safety committees discuss issues pertaining to staff, student, and public safety, such as hazardous conditions or practices, accidents and injuries, site security, emergency preparedness, property and liability concerns, or any other matter that might affect school safety.

Student Accident Insurance

The San Dieguito Union High School District does not provide medical insurance coverage for school accidents. This means that you are responsible for the medical bills if your child gets hurt during school activities. The District makes available student accident/health insurance plans for you to purchase to help you pay those bills.

Many coverage options are available. The District does not administer these student health insurance plans and cannot answer any questions regarding coverage.

If you have any questions regarding the insurance, such as an explanation of coverages, exclusions, or claims procedures, please call the plan administrator, Pacific Educators at (800) 722-3365 or (714) 639-0962.  Bilingual representatives are available for parents who need assistance in Spanish.

Some pupils may qualify to enroll in no-cost or low-cost local, state, or federally sponsored health insurance programs.  Information about these programs may be obtained by calling the California Uninsured Help Line at (800) 234-1317 or SD-KHAN at (800) 675-2229. Bilingual representatives are available for parents who need assistance in Spanish.
