The School Committee subscribes to the fullest extent to the principle of the dignity of all people and of their labors and will take action to ensure that any individual within the District who is responsible for hiring and/or personnel supervision understands that applicants are employed, assigned, and promoted without regard to their race, creed, color, age, sex, gender identity, national origin, disability or sexual orientation, pregnancy or pregnancy related condition. Every available opportunity will be taken in order to assure that each applicant for a position is selected on the basis of qualifications, merit and ability.
If you believe the adverse employment action happened to you because of your race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity, age, criminal record (inquiries only), disability, pregnancy or pregnancy related condition, sexual orientation, genetics, active military personnel, or past involvement in a discrimination complaint, it could be discrimination.
