Affirmative Action

The North Kitsap School District has established a firm commitment to providing equal employment opportunity to its staff and to applicants for positions in the district. A new Affirmative Action policy will be adopted concurrent with the approval of this five-year plan. (See Appendix A.) The plan presented here is designed for the years 2009-2014. Although this plan covers a five-year period, it is essential that it be reviewed regularly and modified in the light of current legislation and, especially, decisions by state and federal courts.
 
The basis for analysis in the current plan involves a comparison of the district's minority staff in various job categories to the percentage of minorities in the available labor force. Similarly, the basis for the analysis relative to gender balance in this plan is the proportion of men to women in the available labor force for various job categories. Additionally, the district's commitment to avoidance of discrimination in the hiring and promotion of disabled persons, disabled veterans, Vietnam-era veterans, and persons over age forty is reaffirmed. The purpose of these affirmative action commitments remains the same as that of earlier plans, to ensure the absence of discrimination in employment practices. The Affirmative Action Plan presented in this document represents the North Kitsap School District's commitment to equal employment opportunity. Each employee of the district who is involved in a hiring or promotion recommendation must be committed to ensuring that the recommendation is made without discrimination. It is the responsibility of each individual manager to promote a strong commitment to equal employment opportunity at his/her work site and throughout the district.
