2018-2019 Faculty Handbook

Religious Holiday Observance

In compliance with federal, state and District Board of Trustees rules which provide that there shall be no discrimination in the treatment of students and employees on the basis of religion, the college shall make reasonable accommodation for religious observance, practice and belief. Such accommodation shall apply to admissions, registration, class attendance and activities, scheduling of examinations and official ceremonies, and work assignments. Any student who believes that he or she has been unreasonably denied an educational benefit due to his or her religious belief or practice, may seek redress through the college grievance procedures.

No adverse or prejudicial effects shall result to any student or employee availing him or herself of the provisions of this rule.
