The Internal Revenue Service requires non-public schools to maintain a School Student Non-Discrimination Policy so those schools are recognized as tax exempt.Archdiocesan schools must demonstrate this policy by annually publishing the School Student
Non-Discrimination Policy.For parish schools, the pastor should publish the School Student Non-Discrimination Policy in the parish bulletin. The school should retain a copy of this parish bulletin in the school file. The statement of non-discrimination also should be published each year in the staff handbook, parent/student handbook, and admissions materials. All schools should submit documentation of the published policy to the
Department of Catholic Schools.
[Note that by complying with this Internal Revenue Service requirement the archdiocese is not waiving any legal exceptions or exemptions that may apply to it as a religious nonprofit organization.]
