Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action is a belief that all staff and students have a right to be treated with equal fairness and to have the maximum opportunity to reach their fullest potential.

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (N.J.S.A. 10:5-12) (LAD) makes it unlawful to subject people to differential treatment based on:

national origin
sex (including pregnancy)
familial status
marital status
domestic partnership or civil union status,
affectional or sexual orientation
gender identity or expression
atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait
genetic information
 liability for military service
mental or physical disability
perceived disability
AIDS and HIV status.

The Garfield School District is committed to ensuring equality and fairness to all.  If you seek further information regarding Affirmative Action please contact:
