It is the policy of the Board of Education not to discriminate on the basis of Protected Classes in its educational programs and activities and employment. Protected Classes generally include race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation or transgender identity), disability, age, religion, height, weight, marital status, military status, ancestry, genetic information and such others as are defined in federal or state law. More detailed information can be found in the Board of Education Policies [on this website -or- at www.jcisd.org]. In addition arrangements can be made to ensure that the lack of English speaking skills is not a barrier to admission or participation.
