POLICY AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENT
It is the policy of the Governing Board to provide an educational environment free of sexual harassment. The Governing Board condemns sexual harassment of any district student by any person.

Each complaint shall be promptly investigated in a way that respects the privacy of all parties concerned. There will be no retaliation against any student for filing a complaint of sexual harassment or participating in the complaint process.
Complaints of sexual harassment shall be filed and processed in accordance with the complaint procedures set forth in Administrative Regulation AR5145.7.
