Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity Statement

Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity

The Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind (CSDB) and its Board is committed to providing a safe learning and work environment where all members of the school community are treated with dignity and respect. CSDB does not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identification, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, or marital status. 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, harassment, or unwelcome behavior under any CSDB program or activity on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation,  national origin, religion, age, ancestry, veteran status, or marital status.  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.

This policy and supporting regulation (AC-R: Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity, Complaint and Compliance Process*) will be used to address all concerns regarding unlawful discrimination and harassment, alleged conduct regarding sex-based discrimination and sexual harassment and will follow the complaint and investigation procedures specific to that conduct.
