Philosophy, Goals, And Objectives
Equal Opportunity

The Board of Education, its officers and employees, will not discriminate against any student, employee, or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, creed or religion, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, or age.

The district will maintain an atmosphere in which all children can develop attitudes and skills for effective, cooperative living, including:

1. respect for individuals regardless of economic status, intellectual ability, race, national background, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, or age;

2. respect for cultural differences;

3. respect for economic, political, social rights of others; and

4. respect for the right of others to seek and maintain their own identities.

In promoting good human relations, the district will make every reasonable effort to create an environment free of prejudice and discrimination.  Employment and promotion for interested individuals will be based solely on qualifications.
