Glenbard Township High School District 87
Policy 5:10

General Personnel

Equal Employment Opportunity and Minority Recruitment

The School District shall provide equal employment opportunities to all persons regardless of their race, color, religion, creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, marital status, arrest record, military status, order of protection, unfavorable military discharge, citizenship status, use of lawful products while not at work, being a victim of domestic or sexual violence, genetic information, physical or mental handicap or disability, if otherwise able to perform the essential functions of the job with reasonable accommodation, pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, credit history, unless a satisfactory credit history is an established bona fide occupational requirement of a particular position, or other legally protected categories. No one will be penalized solely for his or her status as a registered qualifying patient or a registered designated caregiver for purposes of the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, 410 ILCS 130/.

Persons who believe they have not received equal employment opportunities should report their claims to their supervisor or to the Nondiscrimination Coordinator and/or a Complaint Manager for the Uniform Grievance Policy. These individuals are listed below. No employee or applicant will be discriminated against because he or she: (1) requested, attempted to request, used or attempted to use a reasonable accommodation as allowed by the Illinois Human Rights Act, or (2) initiated a complaint, was a witness, supplied information, or otherwise participated in an investigation or proceeding involving an alleged violation of this policy or State or federal law, provided the employee or applicant did not make a knowingly false accusation nor provide knowingly false information.

Administrative Implementation

The Superintendent shall appoint a Nondiscrimination Coordinator for personnel who shall be responsible for coordinating the District's nondiscrimination efforts. The Nondiscrimination Coordinator may be the Superintendent or a Complaint Manager for the Uniform Complaint
Procedure. The Superintendent or Designee will notify staff of the names of the individuals filling the positions listed below.

The Nondiscrimination Coordinator and Complaint Manager will be the Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Student Services and the Human Resources Coordinator. The individuals can be reached at (630) 469-9100, 596 Crescent Boulevard Glen Ellyn, Illinois 60137-4297.

The Superintendent of Designee shall also use reasonable measures to inform staff members and applicants that the District is an equal opportunity employer, such as by posting required notices and including this policy in the appropriate handbooks.

Minority Recruitment

The District will attempt to recruit and hire minority employees. The implementation of this policy may include advertising openings in minority publications, participating in minority job fairs, and recruiting at colleges and universities with significant minority enrollments.  This policy, however, does not require or permit the District to give preferential treatment or special rights based on a protected status without evidence of past discrimination.
