The Clarkston School District will provide equal educational opportunity and treatment for all students in all aspects of the academic and activities program without discrimination based on race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, honorably-discharged veteran or military status, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, marital status, the presence of any sensory, mental or physical disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability.  The district will provide equal access to school facilities to the Boy Scouts of America and all other designated youth groups listed in Title 36 of the United States Code as a patriotic society.  The following employee has been designated to handle questions and complaints of alleged discrimination: Civil Rights and Title IX Coordinator, Troy Whittle, Assistant Superintendent, 1294 Chestnut, Clarkston, WA 99403 (509)758-2531, whittlet@csdk12.org; Section 504/ADA Coordinator, Rebecca Lockhart, Executive Director of Student Services, 1294 Chestnut, Clarkston, WA 99403, (509) 758-2531, lockhartr@csdk12.org.

Anyone may file a complaint against the district alleging that the district has violated anti-discrimination laws.  This complaint procedure is designed to assure that the resolution of real or alleged violations are directed toward a just solution that is satisfactory to the complainant, the administration and the board of directors.  This grievance procedure will apply to the general conditions of the nondiscrimination policy (Policy 3210) and more particularly to policies dealing with guidance and counseling (Policy 2140), co-curricular program (Policy 2150), service animals in schools (Policy 2030) and curriculum development and instructional materials (Policy 2020). As used in this procedure:

“Grievance” means a complaint which has been filed by a complainant relating to alleged violations of any state or federal anti-discrimination laws.‚Äč  

“Complaint” means a written charge alleging specific acts, conditions or circumstances, which are in violation of the anti-discrimination laws. The time period for filing a complaint is one year from the date of the occurrence that is the subject matter of the complaint. However, a complaint filing deadline may not be imposed if the complainant was prevented from filing due to: 1) Specific misrepresentations by the district that it had resolved the problem forming the basis of the complaint; or 2) Withholding of information that the district was required to provide under WAC 392-190-065 or WAC 392-190-005. Complaints may be submitted by mail, fax, e-mail or hand-delivery to any district, school or to the district compliance officer responsible for investigating discrimination complaints. Any district employee who receives a complaint that meets these criteria will promptly notify the compliance officer.

“Respondent” means the person alleged to be responsible or who may be responsible for the violation alleged in the complaint.
