Non-Discrimmination Policy - Delaware City School District is an equal opportunity employer and educator and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, race, color, age, religion, national or ethnic origin, or disability in administration of its organizational policies, activities, admissions, programs or employment practice
The Board of Education is committed to implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) framework on a District-wide basis and the establishment of a school environment focused on the care, safety, and welfare of all students and staff members. Staff are directed to work to prevent the use of physical restraint and/or seclusion. The PBIS framework shall serve as the foundation for the creation of a learning environment that promotes the use of evidence-based academic and behavioral practices aimed at enhancing academic, social and behavioral outcomes for all students. An emphasis shall be placed on promoting positive interventions and solutions to potential crises. If a student's behavior, however, presents a threat of immediate physical harm to the student or others, staff may, as a last resort (i.e., there is no other safe and effective intervention available) and in accordance with the terms of this policy, use approved physical restraint or seclusion to maintain a safe environment.

Asbestos Management Plan
The US EPA published their AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act) Regulations in 1986. These regulations require all local education agencies (LEA’s) to have their buildings inspected for asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM), to have a written Asbestos Management Plan created, and to institute an Asbestos Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Program to train in-house personnel how to properly manage and work around the ACBM in their buildings. An annual notification is required to be sent to all school district employees, parents, groups and organizations to explain the Management Plans and any current relevant activities. The Delaware City School District has completed all of these requirements.
The master copy of the Asbestos Management Plan for all school buildings is maintained in the office of Facilities Management 740-833-1100. A copy of the Asbestos Management Plan that is specific to each building is maintained in the principal’s office. The purpose of this Annual Notification is to explain the status and availability of the Asbestos Management Plan, to review recent asbestos-related activities in the school district, and to list the asbestos-related activities that are planned to take place in the upcoming calendar year.
