The Board of Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation or transgender identity), disability, age, religion, military status, ancestry, or genetic information (“protected classes”) in its educational programs or activities. As part of its non-discrimination policies, the Board of Education prohibits harassment and/or discrimination of a student who is a member of a protected class. These policies further provide information related to how a parent or student may submit a complaint of discrimination or harassment. Copies of Board Policies 2260 and 2260.01 may be accessed on the District’s website or obtained from the building principal.
Board Policies 2260 and 2260.01, as they apply to students protected under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, were recently amended to include a provision that re-evaluations of students will be conducted before any significant change in placement including significant changes in placement that arise in the disciplinary context. Questions on these or any other Board Policies may be directed to Galen Gingerich, Assistant Superintendent/Director of Services. Mr. Gingerich can be reached at 937-669-6300 or GRGingerich@TippCity.k12.oh.us.
