Non-Discrimination Policy and Grievance Procedure

Non-Discrimination Policy:

Opportunities Academy as a matter of policy provides educational opportunities without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, disability, or age. In addition, Collegiate Academies does not permit or condone discrimination based on race, creed, color, national origin, religion, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical disability, or age in employment matters or assignment in programs or services provided.

If you wish to discuss the regulations governing these policies, or wish to discuss a concern or file a grievance, please contact our James Lukens at 504-503-1421.
Grievance Procedure:

Any student, parent/guardian, employee or employment applicant who feels that he/she has been discriminated against on the basis of race, creed, color, age, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, disability, or marital status may discuss and/or file a grievance with the appropriate compliance. Reporting should take place, in writing, within forty (40) calendar days of the alleged discrimination.

A student or parent/guardian of a student who has a question or concerns may choose to seek the help of the building administrator or another adult with whom they trust, such as a teacher, counselor, nurse, psychologist. If satisfaction cannot be achieved through this discussion, the adult sought by the student should assist the student in reporting the incident, in writing, to the school compliance officer, [SCHOOL SITE PERSON RESPONSIBLE’S NAME AND CONTACT INFORMATION] The goal is to resolve the problem at the lowest possible administrative level with an equitable solution.

The compliance officer will commence an effective, thorough, objective and complete investigation of the complaint within ten (10) working days after receipt of the complaint. The compliance officer will consult with all individuals reasonably believed to have relevant information, including the complainant and the alleged violator, any witnesses to the conduct, and victims of similar conduct that the investigator reasonably believes may exist. The investigation shall be free of stereotypical assumptions about either party. The investigation shall be carried on discreetly, maintaining confidentiality insofar as possible while still conducting an effective and thorough investigation. Throughout the entire investigation process, due process rights will be upheld. No reprisals will be taken or permitted for truthfully asserting a complaint.

The compliance officer shall make a written report summarizing the results of the investigation and proposed disposition of the matter, and shall provide copies to the complainant, the alleged violator, and, as appropriate, to all others directly concerned within fifteen (15) working days after receiving the complaint.

If the complainant is not satisfied with the decision of the compliance officer, an appeal in writing may be made to Collegiate Academies’ Chief Executive Office, Benjamin Marcovitz within ten (10) days of receipt of the decision. Appeals may be submitted via email to bmarcovitz@collegiateacademies.org or mailed to:

Collegiate Academies
Attn: Benjamin Marcovitz
PO Box 872110
New Orleans, LA 70187

The Chief Executive Officer, within thirty (30) working days, will investigate the complaint and may conduct a hearing to gather additional information. The decision of the Chief Executive Officer will be final. The Board of Directors does not consider individual parent grievances except in cases related to the alleged violation of law.
