Affirmative Action Information

It is the mission of the Affirmative Action Office to ensure that the Secaucus Public School Board of Education maintains compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations pertaining to non-discrimination and affirmative action for all staff, students and visitors.

District Equity Statement
It is the policy of Secaucus Public School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, ancestry, national origin, social or economic status, pregnancy, or physical handicap in its educational programs or activities. Furthermore, the District strives to maintain a learning environment that is free from sexual harassment. 

Courses of study and curricula shall be designed, and instructional materials shall be selected to promote understanding, equity, and mutual respect among people. No course offering in any school, grade or subject shall be limited on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, ancestry, national origin, social or economic status, pregnancy, or physical handicap. 

Furthermore, there shall be no discrimination against students as to any educational activity or program due of pregnancy, childbirth, pregnancy-related disabilities, actual or potential parenthood, or family or marital status. If a student requests to be excluded or a physician certifies that such is necessary for her physical, mental, or emotional well-being, she must be provided with adequate and timely opportunity for instruction to continue or make up her schoolwork without prejudice or penalty.​
