Business Education PhilosophyThe philosophy of business education is to help all students develop the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to succeed in the post-secondary study in a business cluster. These acquired skills will also prepare a student for the workforce.
Business education will help students develop skills in accounting, finance, law, computer applications, entrepreneurship, marketing, management, and workforce development. Business and marketing education provides instruction about the business world that is a necessary component for students to become contributing citizens who are capable of making astute economic and consumer decisions.
The Mountain Brook school system does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or age in any of its programs and activities, or in matters of employment, and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups. It is against the policy of the Mountain Brook Board of Education to have different rules or regulations on the basis of sex in employment, including recruitment, hiring classification, and other terms, conditions or privileges of employment. The Board, in accordance with Title IX (20 U.S.C. S1681, et seq.), strictly prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex or gender in its programs or activities, or any matters of employment. The prohibition includes sexual harassment based on sex, sexual assault, as defined by law and Board policy. Sexual harassment and sexual assault complaints should be filed and reviewed under the Board’s sexual harassment policies (G-32, J-49). All other complaints under Title IX will be filed and reviewed according to the Board’s general complaints and grievance procedures (G-34, J-41). The Superintendent is authorized and directed to designate a Title IX Coordinator, whose duties will include, but not be limited to receiving and responding to Title IX inquiries and complaints. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding nondiscrimination policies: Dr. Susan Cole; 32 Vine Street; Mountain Brook, AL; email@example.com; 205-871-4608.
