Similarly, all salaries, wages, benefit programs and personnel policies shall be administered in conformity with this policy.

Reasonable accommodations shall be made for qualified individuals with a disability, unless such accommodations would impose an undue hardship to the District.

Responsibility for overseeing the District’s equal employment opportunity and affirmative action programs and investigating discrimination complaints is assigned to the Office of Human Resources.

All employees will receive information and training regarding rights and responsibilities regarding discrimination considerations as they relate to employment.
