Non-Discrimination Policy Statements
Equal Opportunity Employment
CAM CSD will provide equal opportunity to employees and applicants for employment in accordance with applicable equal opportunity and affirmative action laws, directives and regulations of federal, state and local governing bodies. The school district will not discriminate against employees or potential employees based upon race, color, creed, sex, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. Opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment includes hiring, placement, promotion, transfer or demotion, recruitment, advertising or solicitation for employment, treatment during employment, rates of pay or other forms of compensation, and layoff or termination. The school district will take affirmative action in major job categories where women, men, minorities and persons with disabilities are under-represented. Employees will support and comply with the district’s established equal employment opportunity and affirmative action policies. Employees will be given notice of this policy annually.
The board will appoint an affirmative action coordinator. The affirmative action coordinator will have the responsibility for drafting the affirmative action plan. The affirmative action plan will be reviewed by the board at least every two years.
Advertisements and notices for vacancies within the district will contain the following statement: “The CAM CSD is an EEO/AA employer.” The statement will also appear on application forms.
Inquiries by employees or applicants for employment regarding compliance with equal employment opportunity and affirmative action laws and policies, including but not limited to complaints of discrimination, will be directed to the Affirmative Action Coordinator by writing to the Affirmative Action Coordinator, CAM CSD, 1000 Victory Park Rd, Anita, Iowa or by telephoning 712-762-3231.
