Union School District does not discriminate in the operation of any of its programs, services, or facilities on the basis of race, gender, disability, creed, or national origin (including the ability to speak English). Discrimination can, under certain circumstances, include harassment on the basis of race, gender, disability, creed, or national origin by District employees, contractors, directors, or students. Any school age child who believes that he or she has been or is being subjected to any such discrimination may complain, either directly or through his or her parent or guardian, to the principal of the building where he or she attends school. If the building principal is the party whom the child or his parents or guardian believe is responsible for an act or acts of discrimination, or if the child does not attend public school, the child or his or her parents or guardian may complain to the Special Education Director at (814) 473-3121. Any member of the community, staff member, or contractor, who believes that the District has discriminated against him or her on the basis of race, gender, disability, creed, or national origin in the operation of any program, service, or facility, may complain to the Superintendent of Schools at (814) 473-6311 . Any person complaining of discrimination will be requested to submit their complaint in writing unless they are unable to do so.
