Olympia School District Affirmative Action Plan

The Board of Directors of the Olympia School District ("District") recognizes that an affirmative action plan is a sound employment practice that assists in achieving a diverse work force. Olympia School District commits itself to a policy of equal opportunity for all applicants and employees without discrimination on the basis of gender, race, creed, color, national origin, sexual orientation, including gender expression or identity, marital status, religion, age, genetic information, honorably discharged veteran status or military status, or physical, mental or sensory disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability.

All personnel policies and practices related to employee selection, promotion, retention, staff development, and compensation will conform to this Affirmative Action Plan and the Board of Directors' policy on equal employment opportunity.

Attainment of and adherence to the Affirmative Action Plan is a primary responsibility of the superintendent, administrators, managers, and supervisors. Every employee will be expected to work toward its success.
