It is the policy of the Uinta County School District Number One Board of Trustees to adhere to a program to ensure that all personnel policies relevant to recruitment, employment and promotion of employees of Uinta County School District Number One, Evanston, Wyoming will provide equal opportunities for all individuals.
All personnel policies and practices of the Board will be in accord with fair employment practices as determined by state and federal legislation. No individual will be discriminated against because of race, creed, sex, ethnic origin or handicap unrelated to ability to perform the duties of the position.
The Board’s policies and district practices also will support the concept of staff balance: within each group of employees there will be a broadly representative cross-section of the school system’s enrollment as to race and sex.
Under the balanced-staff concept, employees must have the necessary qualifications for their positions or for a position for which they choose to apply.
Note: Age, sex or handicap may be considered as a factor only if such consideration is permitted by law, regulation or the requirements of any federal or state training or employment program or if based on a bona fide occupational qualification, under the terms of applicable legislation.
