Affirmative Action and Equal Educational Opportunity Policy

BE IT RESOLVED, that the North Bergen Board of
Education does hereby affirm its policy to ensure
educational opportunities for all students and equal
employment opportunities for all persons and by
said policy affirms not to discriminate in its educational
programs, activities, employment policy or admission
policies and practices on the basis of race, creed,
color, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status,
affectional or sexual orientation, gender, religion,
disability, socioeconomic status, or lack of English skills.
The North Bergen Board of Education shall maintain
a learning and working environment that is free from
sexual harassment. Administrators and supervisors
will make it clear to all staff that sexual harassment is
prohibited in the work place or educational setting and
is grounds for disciplinary action. Sexual harassment
includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for
sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct
of a sexual nature carried out by someone in the
work place or educational setting. Such behavior
may offend the recipient, cause discomfort or humiliation,
or interfere with job or school performance.
Acceptance of sexual advances sometimes creates a complex
situation which may include various forms of blackmail
and favoritism and can influence true compliance with
the law in all other areas.

The North Bergen Board of Education has designated
the Affirmative Action/Section 504 Compliance
Officer/Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act
Coordinator to coordinate compliance efforts and to investigate
any complaints of discrimination as pertains to the
above. As required by Federal regulations, all employees
and students must be notified of the name, office address,
