Equal Educational Opportunities

 The Cherokee County Board of Education respects the deep diversity of its students and employees. Accordingly, it will, to the extent practicable, accommodate that diversity provided, however, no procedure provided for herein will infringe upon students’ and employees’ right to privacy.

The School District will not discriminate on the basis of “Constitutionally-Protected Differences” and other legally protected statuses (e.g., race, age, gender, gender identity, color, religion, national origin, disability or other protected status in its programs, activities or employment practices.

The School District will maintain its educational programs, including extracurricular/ interscholastic activities, in compliance with all Federal and state laws, Georgia High School Association rules and State Board of Education rules relating to discrimination.

The Superintendent will establish procedures and designate individuals to coordinate compliance with this policy. Notice of this Policy and procedures for redress with names, titles and contact information of District-level coordinators will be published and maintained on the School District website and included in the Student/Parent Handbook.
