Affirmative Action

Federal and state regulations require employers to establish protocols, including Affirmative Action initiatives, policies, and procedures, to address workplace discrimination. Despite these legal obligations, discrimination remains a significant issue nationwide. The most common form of discrimination today arises from routine practices in both education and employment, often unintentional.

The Affirmative Action policies and district initiatives are aimed at creating proactive and effective programs designed to address and rectify discriminatory practices in both employment and educational services.
