Overview

Dear Parents and Students:

This Career and Educational Planning Guide contains a wealth of information to assist as you organize and implement a plan for your high school career and beyond. The career path information offers a range of possible careers for each student to consider. Parents can use the career path information to discuss career opportunities with their children. Student course selection is very important. Schedule changes can be very difficult and/or denied; therefore, students and parents should carefully consider course selections to ensure the most appropriate choices for students. The teachers, counselors, and administrators are available to assist students and parents as they make course decisions. Please do not hesitate to ask for this assistance.

Sincerely,

Lee's Summit R-7 Secondary Administration


NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION

Discrimination is any behavior that prevents individuals from achieving their full human potential. Discrimination involves treating persons as members of groups, rather than on the basis of their individual capacities or merits. It includes any conduct that is based solely on race, color, creed, sex, religion, national origin, socioeconomic status, disability, age, or marital status. Both individuals and institutions perpetuate discrimination. School systems, as one of society's most influential institutions, must address themselves to this issue.

The R-7 Lee's Summit School System strives to develop each student's fullest potential as a unique human being. To do this requires an awareness of the subtlety and harmfulness of all forms of discrimination. It is the responsibility of each board member, administrator, teacher, staff member, and student to understand the nature of discrimination and to see that it is eliminated wherever it may exist in the R-7 Lee's Summit School System.

The Board of Education affirms its intent to provide equal opportunity in its programs, practices, and activities regardless of race, color, creed, sex, religion, national origin, socioeconomic status, disability, age, or marital status.

Actions, statements, or other conduct by students, staff, or administration constituting discrimination on any basis set forth above is strictly prohibited on school premises, or in connection with any school related program or activity and may be grounds for appropriate disciplinary action.

This District is committed to follow a policy of non-discrimination in all of its programs and activities. The District will endeavor to ensure an environment for our students, employees, and patrons free of discrimination, including an environment free of racial, religious, sexual, or other unlawful harassment. This policy prohibits harassment in any form, including verbal and physical harassment, unwelcome comments, jokes, or statements of a discriminatory nature, and unwelcome advances.

The Board has designated the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, Dr. Deborah Delsemme, located at 301 NE Tudor Road, Lee's Summit, MO 64086, 986-1004, as the district's Title IX/Section 504/Non-discrimination/ADA Compliance coordinator.
