Sexual Harassment / Discrimination Policy

Policy G-Personnel, GAEB -
Sexual Harassment/Discrimination (Employees)
Effective Date: September 15, 2022

The Board is committed to providing a workplace free from distractions caused by sexual harassment; all forms of discrimination on the basis of sex, age, race, color, disability, religion, or national origin; or inappropriate or offensive conduct. It is the Board's expectation that all personnel conduct themselves in a highly professional manner and respect coworkers, students, parents, and customers. In this regard, the Board prohibits sexual harassment, all forms of discrimination, and other unprofessional conduct.

Sexual harassment means conduct on the basis of sex that satisfies one or more of the following:

(1) An employee of the recipient conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit, or service of the recipient on an individual's participation in unwelcome sexual conduct;
(2) Unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the recipient's education program or activity; or
(3) “Sexual assault” as defined in 20 U.S.C. 1092(f)(6)(A)(v), “dating violence” as defined in 34 U.S.C. 12291(a)(10), “domestic violence” as defined in 34 U.S.C. 12291(a)(8), or “stalking” as defined in 34 U.S.C. 12291(a)(30).

No reprisal shall occur as a result of making a report under this policy and any attempt to retaliate against a complainant shall be disciplined as is appropriate.

It shall be the responsibility of the Superintendent or his/her designee to ensure that a procedure consistent with this policy and applicable law is implemented.
