Posted by:

Foothill Country Day School’s Non-Discrimination Policy prohibits employees, students, or individuals with whom the School has a business, contractual, or professional relationship, such as parents, legal guardians, unpaid interns, volunteers, independent contractors, or vendors, from harassing or discriminating against applicants, employees, students, contractors, unpaid interns, or volunteers, because of (1) an individual’s protected classification; (2) the perception of an individual’s protected classification; or (3) the protected classification or perceived protected classification of a person with whom the individual associates.

Foothill Country Day School’s Non-Discrimination Policy prohibits harassment or discrimination because of an individual’s protected classification(s). A “protected classification” includes race, color, religion (including all aspects of religious beliefs, observance or practice, including religious dress or grooming practices), sex (including gender, gender identity, gender expression, transgender, pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation (including heterosexuality, homosexuality, and bisexuality), national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, military and veteran status, marital status, age, medical condition, genetic characteristics or information, and physical or mental disability.

Students and employees are entitled to an employment and educational environment that is free of discriminatory harassment. The School’s Non-Discrimination Policy is intended to provide notice of compliance with Title IX and federal and state civil rights laws to all employees, students, parents/guardians, applicants for admission and employment, and other interested persons, as appropriate. The School will require all persons, agencies, vendors, contractors, and other persons and organizations doing business with or performing services for the school to adhere to this policy and to all applicable federal and state laws pertaining to school operations.
