Equal Employment Opportunity and Non-Discrimination
The District shall provide equal employment opportunities to all persons, regardless of their race, color, religion, creed, national origin, sex, age, ancestry, marital status, military status, citizenship status, use of lawful products while not at work, physical or mental handicap or disability, if otherwise able to perform the essential functions of the job with reasonable accommodations, and other legally protected categories.

In keeping with these statements, the following shall be guiding principles for the district:

  1. To promote the rights and responsibilities of all individuals as set forth in the State and Federal constitutions, pertinent legislation, and applicable judicial interpretations.
  2. To encourage positive experiences in human values for children and adults who have differing personal and family characteristics or who come from various socio-economic, racial and ethnic groups.
  3. To carefully consider, in all decisions that affect schools, the potential benefits or adverse consequences that those decisions might have on the human relations aspects of all segments of society.
  4. To utilize educational experiences to build each individual's pride in the community in which he or she lives.
  5. To initiate a process of reviewing all policies and practices of Kimberly Schools in order to achieve the objectives of this policy.

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 an undue hardship upon the District.
