In affirmation of its responsibility to ensure all its students equal educational opportunity regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, and social or economic status, the Board of Education has a longstanding policy regarding Affirmative Action.
The policy provides for equality in school programs, classroom practices, and extracurricular activities. Equal access and benefits are granted to all students. No differentiation of opportunity to participate in courses or activities or requirements for completion of course offerings is made solely on the basis of his or her race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, affectional or sexual orientation, gender, religion, disability or socioeconomic status. Part of the policy also guarantees students will be free from discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, pregnancy disabilities, actual or potential parenthood, or family or marital status.
Any person or persons wishing to file a grievance with reference to the district's employment practice or the affirmative action program for school and classroom practices should contact the district Affirmative Action Officer or the NJ State Department of Education, Office of Educational Opportunity, CN 500, Trenton, NJ 08625. Complaints of discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender or disability may also be directed to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights.
