• HISD Ethics Hotline 1-800-455-9551 - Online Ethics Hotline


    Houston Independent School District (HISD / district) is committed to conducting business while adhering to strict ethical and compliance standards. The district has an anonymous HelpLine, so that suspected fraud, waste, abuse, or any other concern about HISD practices can be reported.

    HISD is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred. Retaliation against employees who file complaints or who assist the District in an investigation of a complaint is strictly prohibited. Acts of retaliation will result in disciplinary action that may include termination.

    In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by a third-party hotline provider, Navex Global. You are encouraged to report suspected fraud, waste, abuse, or any other concern about HISD practices.  You can also ask questions regarding ethical dilemmas or district policies, procedures, or guidelines.

    The information you provide will be sent to The Office of Ethics and Compliance by Navex Global on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.
