Policy 1305 - Nondiscrimination

​​​​​​​​​​The Board believes in the right of every student to receive equal opportunities in all educational programs and activities conducted by the district. The Board also believes in the right of every qualified individual to expect fair and equal treatment both as an applicant for employment and as an employee.

The Rockwood School District prohibits and will not tolerate discrimination against or harassment of any student, employee or applicant for employment, or in its programs and activities, because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, age, genetic information, marital status, disability, handicapping conditions, or any other factor that is not a proper legal basis for an employment decision, and it provides equal access to the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts,​ and other designated youth groups. This policy will prevail in all matters concerning the staff, the students, the public, the educational programs and services of the district, and individuals with whom the Board does business.

In keeping with the requirements of federal and state law, this district strives to remove any vestige of discrimination in employment, assignment, and promotion of personnel; in educational programs, offerings, services and vocational opportunities offered to students; in the assignment of students to schools and classes; in student discipline; and in the location and use of facilities and educational materials. The Board will designate individuals to act as the district's nondiscrimination compliance coordinators, and will ensure that the coordinators' names, business addresses and telephone numbers, as well as the statements of nondiscrimination by the district, are published to patrons, employees and students on an annual basis.

The Superintendent/designee shall continue all necessary actions to ensure that discrimination does not occur in the educational program, employment practices or activities of the district.
