arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees shall provide equal employment opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, creed, sex, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, or nonjob-related handicap or disability. The Board establishes a program of affirmative action in order to assure that all personnel policies relevant to recruiting, hiring, and promoting employees guarantee equal opportunities for all. (Education Code 44100)

Recruitment, selection and employment practices of the district shall provide a concerted effort to hire and promote qualified individuals of minority ethnic background so that the total district staff is representative of student and community populations of the district. The administration shall make an effort to assign staff to each school so that a reasonable representation of the student population is achieved.

Administrators shall periodically reaffirm and review the affirmative action plan and its application in order to ensure compliance with affirmative action provisions of law.

This policy shall be publicized throughout the district and community and its intent made explicit in all district manuals and publications.

The Board requests an annual report from the Superintendent or designee concerning the extent to which the affirmative action program goals are being achieved.
