6411 Equal Opportunity And Affirmative Action


The School District of Grand Island (hereafter referred to as the district) is committed to offering employment based upon ability and performance in a discrimination free environment.

It shall be the policy of the district to assure equal employment opportunities to all applicants and employees by prohibiting discriminatory practices. In all employment activities, including, but not limited to, hiring, promotions, transfers, training, compensation and termination, the district is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. The district will employ the best qualified applicant for each position without regard to sex, physical or intellectual disability, race, color, religion, veteran status, national or ethnic origin, marital status, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition, or other protected status and to not fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to compensation, terms conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s sex, disability, race, color, religion, veteran status, national or ethnic origin, marital status, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition, or  other protected status. The district will make reasonable accommodations for the physical and intellectual limitations of otherwise qualified employees or applicants unless it can be demonstrated that such accommodations would impose an undue hardship on the functioning of the district. This policy also prohibits practices, policies, and procedures which result in disparate or unfair treatment.

Every school board member, administrator, and employee will comply with the provisions of this policy within the assigned areas of responsibility. There shall be no discrimination by school officials against any employee because of membership or activity in an employee organization or because of protected free speech activities.

Any applicant or employee who believes that the provisions of this policy have not been appropriately administered will bring such matters to the attention of the Superintendent of Schools.

A copy of this policy will be distributed to all employees and new employees at the time of hire.
