Substitute and Temporary Positions

This Notice is being posted pursuant to an agreement between Baltimore County Public Schools and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended by the American with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADA), it shall be unlawful for an employer to discriminate against any employee or job applicant with respect to hiring, promotion, firing, compensation, or any other term, condition, or privilege of employment because the individual has a disability, has a history of a disability, or is believe to be disabled.

The ADA also requires an employer to provide reasonable accommodation to an employee or job applicant with a disability, unless doing so would cause significant difficulty or expense for the employer.

Baltimore County Public Schools supports and will comply with the ADA in all respects and will not retaliate in any manner against employees or job applicants because they have exercised their rights under the law.

Baltimore County Public Schools has an equal employment opportunity policy and ensures that all supervisory employees and other employees abide by the requirements of that policy.

Any Alleged violations of the ADA (within 300 days of the date of the discriminatory act) may be reported to:
