Harassment and the Law
The Code of Acceptable Behavior and Discipline and the Student Bill of Rights (Revised 2014) defines harassment/discrimination as stated below:
Harassment/Discrimination is intimidation by threats of or acts of physical violence or the expression of hatred, contempt, or prejudice toward an individual for any reason. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal and/or physical behavior of a sexual nature.
Harassment/Discrimination of any type is not permitted. A student has the right to attend school free from harassment and should not be subjected to discrimination for any reason. Schools will strive to ensure that these rights are protected and that appropriate consequences are provided to offenders.
