arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Superintendent or designee shall maintain an affirmative action program as required by law.

As part of this program, the Superintendent or designee shall determine whether the following groups are underrepresented within the district work force: men, women, whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, American Indians or other minorities. Where underrepresentation exists, the affirmative action program shall specify remedial action to be taken, including hiring goals and timetables.

The affirmative action program shall be temporary and shall be fashioned in response to a demonstrated need for remedial action. The Superintendent or designee shall update the affirmative action program not less than every five years. The program shall not unnecessarily hinder the employment of any group member.

The Superintendent or designee shall publicize this policy throughout the district and the community.

The Board may request the Superintendent to report annually regarding the extent to which program goals are being achieved.
