Non-Discrimination Policy

Equal Rights and Opportunities-Non-discrimination

To comply with Federal laws (including Title IX of Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990), State laws, and State Department of Education regulations concerning equal rights and opportunities and to assure these within our school community, the Seneca Highlands Intermediate Unit declares itself to be an Equal Rights and Opportunities District. As an Equal Rights and Opportunities District, it does not discriminate against individuals or groups because of race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, marital status, veteran status, handicap or disability status, or genetic information. The District's commitment to nondiscrimination extends to students, employees, prospective employees, and the community.
