Sexual Harassment Policy and Reporting

Sexual Harassment Policy/Reporting

The district is committed to a positive and productive education free from discrimination, including sexual harassment. This commitment extends to all students involved in academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic and other programs or activities of the school, whether that program or activity is in a school facility, on school transportation, takes place electronically or at a class or school training held elsewhere. This commitment includes fostering a safe reporting environment for all students and acknowledges complaints have multiple layers of complexity.  To foster a safe reporting environment, the district will continue to encourage students to come forward when schools review the sexual harassment policy each year. Discussion will include who students can make such reports to, that retaliation against a person making a complaint is prohibited and all complaints will be investigated promptly.
