Equal Employment Opportunity Discrimination

The Melrose School Department is an equal opportunity employee. It is the school department’s goal to provide equal employment opportunities for all employees, to prevent any unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex, race, religion, color, age, national origin or handicap in its educational programs-activities or employment policies as required by Title IX of the 1972 Federal Educational Amendments and Chapter 622 of the State Acts of 1971. Chapter 622 states that “No person shall be excluded from or discriminated against an admission to a public school of any town, or in obtaining the advantages, privileges and courses of study of such public school on account of race, color, sex (including pregnancy), religion, national origin or sexual orientation.” Title IX states, “No person shall on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits or activity receiving Federal Financial Assistance.” Inquiries regarding compliance with Title IX M.G.L. Ch. 622, or M.G.L. Ch. 76, Sec.5 may be directed to:
