Nondiscrimination Policy Statement
The law requires districts to have board adopted policy statements on nondiscrimination in programs and employment. The policies are required to cover the protected classes included in the checklists above. The policies must be adopted by the school board and must be included in the official Board Policy Book. The policies should be reviewed and revised or reaffirmed every five years as per Chapter 12 requirements.
A policy of nondiscrimination represents the district’s commitment to equity. It provides documentation that the district is committed to provide educational opportunities for all its students.
