Non-Discrimination: Instructional Program
The school system pledges itself to avoid discriminatory actions and instead seeks to foster good human and educational relations which will help to attain the following:
--equal rights and opportunities for students and employees in the school community.
--equal opportunity for all students to participate in the total program of the schools.
--ongoing professional development opportunities for improving staff knowledge, skills, and responsiveness to educational, social, and cultural differences.
--opportunities in educational programs which are broadly available to pupils with access not solely based upon race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or physical or cognitive disability.
