Uniform Complaint Policy And Procedures - Discrimination Claims
It is the policy of the Newark Unified School District to ensure that its programs, activities, services and personnel practices comply with state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs. Additionally, it is the District's policy to ensure that its programs, activities, services, and personnel practices do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, age over 40, marital status, religion, physical/mental disability or sexual orientation so long as the employee is capable of performing his/her essential job duties.
To this end, the District shall investigate and follow uniform complaint procedures in responding to complaints alleging unlawful discrimination or failure to comply with state or federal law in child basic education and adult basic education, vocational education, child care and development programs, child nutrition programs, and special education programs.
Effort will be made to protect the privacy of parties involved in a complaint. Files pertaining to complaints handled under this process are confidential and therefore will only be discussed on a need-to-know basis as a means of investigating and resolving the matter(s).
