Fraud Hotline

  • In Denton ISD we pride ourselves on a culture of openness, trust and integrity. Hence, the Board of Trustees has adopted policy CAA: Fiscal Management Goals and Objectives-Financial Ethics.

    Employees who believe they are aware of a violation of this policy are expected and encouraged to report their concerns. Employees have many ways in which they can report a concern or incident related to this policy.  They may discuss it with their supervisor, the Chief Financial Officer, General Counsel or the Superintendent. Employees may also make confidential and anonymous reports by using a fraud hotline reporting site.

    Effective September 1st we have engaged Lighthouse Services to provide an anonymous ethics and compliance hotline for all employees of Denton ISD. The purpose of this service is to ensure that any employee wishing to submit a report anonymously can do so without fear of retribution. Employees may reference the District’s whistleblower policy DG: Employee Rights and Privileges for more information.

    Employees are encouraged to use the hotline service in cases where their anonymity is desired.  Please follow the District’s standard practices for all reports or issues not requiring anonymity.

Reports may cover but are not limited to the following topics:

  • NOTE: Reports of personnel issues should be directed to the Human Resources Department and follow the protocol established for reporting.

    Please note that the information provided by you may be the basis of an internal and/or external investigation into the issue you are reporting, and your anonymity will be protected to the extent possible by law by Lighthouse and Denton ISD. However, your identity may become known during the course of the investigation because of the information you have provided.   Reports are submitted by Lighthouse to a company designee for investigation according to our company policies.

    Lighthouse Services website and toll-free number are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for use by employees and staff.
