NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Metro Nashville Public Schools Director Jesse Register violated the terms of his contract with the city by not filing financial disclosure statements for the last two years.
The Tennessean is reporting that Register may have also violated the city's ethics code by not filing the statements.
The disclosures allow the public to see if officials have private business dealings or financial interests that may pose a conflict of interest with their official work.
The statements for the past two years are now on file, but Register left blank the area asking him to disclose gifts, travel, meals or tickets to events. He said Metro attorneys advised him to leave the area blank.
A spokeswoman for the schools said Register didn't realize his contract required filing of the disclosures.
