Jordan School District strives to ensure the rights of students, employees, parents and the general public of Jordan School District are maintained by providing physical facilities, programs and services which are accessible.
Notification of Non-Discrimination Policy
Jordan School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnic background, national origin, religion, gender, creed, age, citizenship or disability in its programs and activities. Inquiries regarding non-discrimination policies should be directed to the appropriate contact, based on the nature of the inquiry.
Basic training is provided to department and school administrators regarding non-discriminatory practices and procedures on such topics as: hiring – retention – disciplinary action, harassment and discrimination, sensitivity awareness in the workplace, ADA compliance and accessibility.
The District is continually evaluates its policies, programs, and facilities to determine the extent to which individuals with disabilities may be restricted in their access to services, activities and facilities. A District Accessibility Committee was established to examine District facilities and operations for physical and/or other barriers that may limit accessibility. Based on the findings of the committee, recommended improvements toward further compliance will be made.In responding to requests for structural improvements to physical facilities the District is limited to the funds in established Capital Improvement Projects and other miscellaneous funds. In the event that these allocated funds are insufficient or already spent, subsequent improvements will be prioritized and scheduled in subsequent fiscal years.
Any employee who believes he/she has been denied program access or otherwise discriminated against is encouraged to initiate a complaint by completing an internal Complaint of Alleged Discrimination Form - Employee and forwarding the form to the District Compliance Officer.The complaint should be submitted by the complainant and/or his/her designee as soon as possible but no later than 60 calendar days after the alleged violation. The District Compliance Officer will investigate all alleged complaints of discrimination and will respond to the individual making the complaint within a reasonable time period (within 15 calendar days) of the written request. If the response by the District Compliance Officer does not satisfactorily resolve the issue, the individual making the request may file an appeal.The availability and submission of an internal complaint of alleged discrimination does not preclude filing a complaint of discrimination with any appropriate state or federal agency, nor is the use of this procedure a prerequisite to the pursuit of other remedies.[/two-thirds-first]
