The Plainview Board of Education is committed to providing a safe learning and work environment where all members of the school community are treated with dignity and respect. The schools in the district are subject to all federal and state laws and constitutional provisions prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, religion, ancestry or need for special education services. Accordingly, no otherwise qualified student, employee, applicant for employment, or member of the public may be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to unlawful discrimination under any district program or activity on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation marital status, national origin, religion, ancestry, or need for special education services. Discrimination against employees and applicants for employment based on age, genetic information, and conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth is also prohibited in accordance with state and federal law.
Board Policy AC is our nondiscrimination policy and is the overarching policy that applies to students, employees, applicants for employment, and community members. Plainview’s notice of nondiscrimination can be found here. Plainview’s Complaint and Compliance Process is fully outlined in Policy AC-R-1, which provides applicable definitions and the steps taken when a complaint is received alleging harassment of discrimination based on protected class, absent those that implicate Title IX and those related to reasonable accommodations and the provision of Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). Forms to report discrimination can be found here.
