Title IX Information

Harassment, Sexual Harassment, and Hazing Students are prohibited from engaging in physical or verbal harassment of and/or threats to other students or staff members. Prohibited harassment includes, but is not limited to, intimidation or disparagement on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, ancestry, religion, age, or disability. Prohibited harassment includes the sort of verbal abuse (e.g., name calling, use of profanity, ethnic or racial slurs, derogatory statements addressed publicly to others) that interferes with an individual student’s education or the educational purposes of the school. 

Refer to School Board Policies ACAA, ACAA-R, and ACAD. Sexual insults, name-calling, off-color jokes, intimidation by words or actions, offensive touching, pressure for sexual activity, unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and gestures and comments of a sexual nature are prohibited and will be construed as sexual harassment. Non-consensual touching, including physical fighting, will be construed as assault and battery. Disciplinary action for acts of harassment, hazing, assault and battery may include suspension or expulsion. Any student who is harassed, hazed, assaulted, or battered should report such occurrence immediately to an administrator.
