Affirmative Action

State and federal statutes and regulations prohibit school districts from discriminatory practices in employment or educational opportunity against any person by reason of race, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, affectional or sexual orientation, marital status, liability for service in the Armed Forces Of the United States, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait of any individual, genetic information, or refusal to submit to a genetic test or make the results of a genetic test known, in employment or in educational opportunities. Further state and federal protection is extended on account of disabilities, social or economic status, pregnancy, childbirth, pregnancy-related disabilities, actual or potential parenthood, or family status.

The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District is committed to maintaining an environment that is free from bullying, cyber-bullying, discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment or hostile work environment based on race, national origin or color, age, disability, religious preference, sex (including non-conformity to gender stereotypes), sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression for students, staff and visitors. Intimidation or retaliatory acts are prohibited.  

Affirmative Action laws ensure equal employment opportunities for all existing and prospective employees.
