Policy 5121 - 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, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, marital status, military status, citizenship status, pregnancy, 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.

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.

Inquiries regarding discrimination should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator.  Specific written complaints should follow the Uniform Grievance Procedure.
