Fay School and its Board of Trustees have committed to maintaining full employment and benefits to Fay’s faculty and staff during this spring’s COVID-19-related campus closing. To assist in this effort, the School has applied for and received a federal loan.
For the duration of the loan, the School is required to comply with certain non-discrimination obligations under federal law. Because Fay has always made it a priority to ensure that all students, employees, and community members are treated in a fair, nondiscriminatory manner, the changes required by these new obligations under federal law are largely procedural, and not substantive. Nonetheless, out of an abundance of caution, the School is implementing new additional policies to avoid any questions about the School’s continued compliance with applicable law.
Specifically, effective immediately, the School is implementing the following policies and procedures:
These policies augment, but do not replace, existing School policies and procedures. (Further, we expect that these new policies and procedures will be in place only for the term of the federal loan, at which point, the School will plan to send you follow-up communication notifying you that these policies are no longer in place.) During that period, however, any conflict between the above-listed policies and the School’s existing policies should be resolved in favor of the above-listed policies. Should you have any questions or inquiries regarding Title IX or any other non-discrimination policies, or how these policies apply to the School, you should contact Diane Byrne, Director of Finance & Operations, at 508-490-8213 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fay School admits students of any race, color, religion or creed, national or ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetic background, or with any disability that can be reasonably accommodated by the School, to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Fay School. The School does not discriminate on the basis of such factors in the administration of its educational policies, employment policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs, athletics, or other school administered programs.
The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the School’s non-discrimination policies, including its Title IX policy:
Diane Byrne, Director of Finance & Operations
48 Main Street, Southborough, MA 01772
