Compliance

Jordan School District Compliance promotes and ensures compliance with all aspects of federal and state laws and District policies and procedures.  Compliance exists to ensure the rights of students, employees, parents and the general public of Jordan School District are maintained by providing physical facilities, programs and services which are accessible.

Notification of Non-Discrimination Policy
Compliance is responsible for providing notification postings, which are conspicuously displayed in universal areas throughout all public facilities in the Jordan School District.

Staff Training
Compliance provides basic training to department and school administrators regarding non-discriminatory practices and procedures on such topics as: hiring – retention – disciplinary action, harassment and discrimination, sensitivity awareness in the workplace, ADA compliance and accessibility.

Accessibility
The District is undertaking a comprehensive evaluation of its policies, programs, and facilities to determine the extent to which individuals with disabilities may be restricted in their access to services, activities and facilities. A District Accessibility Committee was established to examine District facilities and operations for physical and/or other barriers that may limit accessibility.  Based on the findings of the committee, recommended improvements toward further compliance will be made.In responding to requests for structural improvements to physical facilities the District is limited to the funds in established Capital Improvement Projects and other miscellaneous funds.  In the event that these allocated funds are insufficient or already spent, subsequent improvements will be prioritized and scheduled in subsequent fiscal years.

Discrimination
Any person who believes he/she has been denied program access or otherwise discriminated against is encouraged to initiate a complaint by completing an internal Complaint of Alleged Discrimination Form and forwarding the form to the District Compliance Officer.The complaint should be submitted by the complainant and/or his/her designee as soon as possible but no later than 60 calendar days after the alleged violation.  The District Compliance Officer will investigate all alleged complaints of discrimination and will respond to the individual making the complaint within a reasonable time period (within 15 calendar days) of the written request.  If the response by the District Compliance Officer does not satisfactorily resolve the issue, the individual making the request may file an appeal.The availability and submission of an internal complaint of alleged discrimination does not preclude filing a complaint of discrimination with any appropriate state or federal agency, nor is the use of this procedure a prerequisite to the pursuit of other remedies.
