The Pulaski Community School District shall establish and maintain an atmosphere in which all persons can develop attitudes and skills for effective, cooperative living, including:
- Respect for the individual regardless of economic or marital status, intellectual ability, race, creed, color, handicap, religion, sex or sexual orientation, age, arrest or conviction record;
- Respect for cultural differences;
- Respect for economic, political and social rights of others; and
- Respect for the right of others to seek and maintain their own identities.
The district shall continue to re-examine thoroughly all parts of the curriculum to make sure that it emphasizes positive human relationships. The instructional materials used in the schools must accurately portray the history, contributions and culture of the various ethnic groups in our society.
In keeping with the requirements of federal and state law, the district shall strive to remove any vestige of discrimination in employment, assignment and promotion of personnel; in educational opportunities and services offered students, their assignment to schools and classes, and their discipline; in location and use of facilities; and in educational opportunities and materials.
It is the policy of the Pulaski Community School District that no person may be denied the benefits of, or be discriminated against in any curricular, extra-curricular, pupil service, recreational, or other program or activity because of the person’s age, sex, race, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, or physical, mental, emotional, or learning disability or handicap as required by S. 118.13, Wisconsin Statues.
