5517 - SEXUAL AND OTHER FORMS OF HARASSMENT

The Board recognizes that a student has the right to work in an environment untainted by sexual or other forms of harassment or discrimination.

Sexual harassment includes all unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and verbal or physical contacts of a sexual nature.  Other forms of prohibited conduct includes discrimination based on gender, religion, race, color, ethnicity, age, disability, and/or limited English proficiency.  A student who feels that s/he has been harassed should notify an administrator.

The harassment of a staff member or student of this Corporation by a student is strictly forbidden.  If after following the procedures in the Discrimination Procedures Manual any student is found to have harassed a professional staff member, student, or other employee of this Corporation, s/he will be subject to discipline in accordance with law, Corporation Discipline Policy, and the school student handbook.

The Superintendent shall ensure that the policy, names of compliance officers, and Discrimination Procedures Manual are available to all students in appropriate places throughout the Corporation.
