Non-Discrimination Policy of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Richmond

As found in the Policy Manual of the Diocese of Richmond’s Office of Catholic Schools, Section IV:

Catholic Schools administered under the authority of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond comply with those constitutional and statutory provisions, as may be specifically applicable to the schools, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, age, marital status, handicap or disability, national origin, or citizenship in the administration of their educational, personnel, admissions, financial aid, athletic and other school administered programs.

The Diocese reserves the right, however, to determine whether and under what circumstances priority should be given to Catholics for certain employment positions. In addition, for Catholic employees, conformance with religious tenets of the Catholic faith is a condition of employment, and all employees may be prohibited from performing, teaching or advocating in the workplace any practices of doctrines which are inconsistent with religious tenets of the Catholic faith. Consistent with the foregoing, it is the policy and practice of the Diocese of Richmond and the parish to provide equal employment opportunity in employment, promotions, wages, benefits, and all other privileges, terms and conditions of employment.

This policy does not preclude the existence of single sex schools, nor does it conflict with the priority given to Catholics for admission as students. This policy also does not preclude the ability of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond to undertake and/or enforce appropriate actions with respect to applicants or students who teach or advocate on school property or at school functions any practices or doctrines which are inconsistent with religious tenets of the Catholic faith.

The administration, faculty and staff of Saint Mary’s Catholic School supports, complies with, and is governed by this policy.
