Non-Discrimination Policy

The Kendall Central School District, in accordance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, political affiliation, sex, age, marital or veteran status, or disability. The Board of Education recognizes its responsibility to provide an environment free from harassment and intimidation in the educational programs and activities it operates.

We do not permit discrimination by employees, school volunteers, students and nonemployees, such as contractors and vendors, as well as any third parties participating in, observing or otherwise engaged in activities subject to the supervision of the District. This includes recruitment and employment practices, pay and benefits, counseling services for students, and student accessed educational programs, courses and activities. The Board also prohibits harassment based upon an individual's opposition to the discrimination or participation in a related investigation or complaint proceeding under the anti-discrimination, or participation in a related investigation or complaint proceeding under the anti-discrimination statutes.

This policy on non-discrimination and anti-harassment will be enforced on School District premises, in school buildings and at all school sponsored events, programs and activities, including those that take place off school premises. Inquiries or complaints should be forwarded to the Superintendent of Schools.
