Security Discrimination and Harassment

Security Policy

AVTEC makes every attempt to provide safe and secure living conditions for students. Students are encouraged to make proper, responsible use of all security provisions, such as room keys. AVTEC is not responsible for lost or stolen personal belongings. Storage of personal belongings during vacations and school closure is at the student’s own risk. Firearms or weapons are not allowed in any AVTEC facility.

 

Freedom from Discrimination and Harassment Policy

Discrimination and Harassment are unlawful under both Alaska and Federal law. AVTEC is an equal opportunity employer / training center.  AVTEC does not discriminate based on race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, disability, marital status, change of marital status, pregnancy, or parenthood. In addition to being illegal, it is also contrary to AVTEC's commitment to provide a safe and secure learning and working environment.

Harassing behavior or harassment of students due to any of Alaska’s eleven protected classes (listed above), or for any reason; is unlawful under Alaska law. AVTEC does not tolerate any harassment of students. It is the practice of AVTEC that all contact between students, teachers, and other employees of AVTEC be in keeping with respect for the individual, be of a nature which does not make a person feel uncomfortable, and be conducive to creating a stable learning environment. This includes speech, clothing, or carrying personal items in public that contain obscene, profane, or offensive language, gestures, pictures, or symbols.

AVTEC complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title I

Each training program has established essential requirements which are listed as prerequisites for admission to that particular program. Program adjustments are made for qualifying students with a documented disability who makes a reasonable request for accommodations by contacting AVTEC’s ADA Coordinator. Adjustments are made in a collaborative manner involving the student, instructor, Department Head, and ADA coordinator to best meet the needs of the student while still preparing the individual for employment in his/her chosen field of training. Please contact AVTEC’s ADA Coordinator prior to the beginning of training, so adjustments can be established and in place.

Individuals with disabilities who require special accommodations, auxiliary aides or call services, or alternative communication formats (TTY) call (800) 478-5389 or 224-3322. We are an equal opportunity provider and support workplace diversity.

Reports of discrimination and/or harassment will be investigated. Anyone found to be in violation will be subject to disciplinary action. For more information, contact the AVTEC Equal Rights Compliance Officer.
