Nondiscrimination / Americans with Disabilities Statement

No student, employee, or applicant for employment in the Fairfax County Public Schools
shall, on the basis of age, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion,
national origin, marital status, or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the
benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity, as
required by law.

These protections apply to students, employees, and other members of the public.  FCPS also provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.  FCPS is committed to equal access and equal opportunity in all services and employment; to include its policies, complaint process, program accessibility, religious accommodations and other Equal Employment Opportunity matters.  FCPS prohibits retaliation against individuals who report allegations of discrimination, file a formal complaint, or participate in the investigative process.

The Department of Human Resources’ director of the Office of Equity and Employee Relations (EER) handles inquiries and complaints regarding nondiscrimination policies (e.g. Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and Title II of the ADA 1990/ADA Amendments Act of 2008).
