What is the Office of Equal Opportunity/Equal Access?

Federal and state law require that an individual or office be designated by local school districts to oversee the implementation of policies dealing with discrimination, harassment and sexual harassment, and to make sure they are complied with within the public school system.

What do we do?

Among the responsibilities of the Office of Equal Opportunity/Equal Access (EO/EA) are:

  • to investigate allegations of discrimination and/or harassment,
  • to develop and recommend policies and practices related to the prevention of discrimination and prohibited conduct in our schools and workplace,
  • to disseminate the district's nondiscrimination policy and grievance appeal procedures to ensure they are posted in a visible location and
  • to conduct policy reviews at our schools and facilities to inform employees and anyone associated with the District of its non-discrimination policies and procedures.
