Equal Employment Opportunity and Non-Discrimination

The School District will provide equal employment opportunities to all persons regardless of race, creed, religion, color, or national origin, genetic information or because of age, physical or mental disability, marital status, or sex when the reasonable demands of the position do not require an age, physical or mental disability, marital status, or sex distinction.

The District will make reasonable accommodation for an individual with a disability known to the District, if the individual is otherwise qualified for the position, unless the accommodation would impose undue hardship on the District.

A person with an inquiry regarding discrimination should direct their questions to the Title IX Coordinator.  A person with a specific written complaint should follow the Uniform Complaint Procedure.

Retaliation against an employee who has filed a discrimination complaint, testified, or participated in any manner in a discrimination investigation or proceeding is prohibited.
