Non-Discrimination Policies

Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity/Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance

In accordance with GCSD Policy AC, the Board 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, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, ancestry or need for special education services.  Accordingly, no otherwise qualified student, employee, applicant for employment or member of the public shall 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 race, color, national origin, ancestry, creed, religion, gender (which includes marital status), sexual orientation (which includes transgender), disability 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/or federal law.

In compliance with Titles VI & VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, and Colorado law, Gilpin County School District RE-1 does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, age, marital status, sexual orientation (which includes transgender), genetic information, conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth, disability or need for special education services in admissions, access to, treatment, or employment in education program or activities which it operates.

Section 504: No discrimination on the basis of disability is permitted in the programs or activities the GCSD operates.

Title IX: Sexual harassment is recognized as a form of sex discrimination and thus a violation of the laws which prohibit sex discrimination.  A learning environment that is free from sexual harassment shall be maintained.  It shall be a violation of policy for any staff member to harass students or for students to harass other students through conduct or communications of a sexual nature.

Students Who are Transgender and Gender Nonconforming

Colorado law and District policy AC-E-3 require that all programs, activities and employment practices be free from discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  These Guidelines are issued in keeping with these mandates to create a safe learning environment for all students and to ensure that every student has equal access to all school programs and activities.
