Affirmative Action Plan

ICSD Affirmative Action Plan

The Independence Community School District is deeply committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action to attain a workforce representative of ethnic and gender diversity. A diverse workforce serves as role models for our students. A diverse workforce broadens and deepens the capacity of our organization to address issues related to diversity. In employing individuals, the board will consider the qualifications, credentials, and records of the applicants without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. In keeping with the law, however, the board will consider the veteran status of the applicants.
