Sexual Harassment

What is it?

Students are protected against sexual harassment by anyone in any school program or activity, including on the school campus, on the school bus, or off-campus during a school-sponsored activity.

Sexual harassment is unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical behavior that is sexual in nature when:

  • A student is led to believe that he or she must submit to unwelcome sexual conduct or communications as a condition of the student’s academic status or progress, or the conduct is used as a basis for any decision affecting the student regarding a benefit or service, honors, a place on a sports team, programs, or other District activities, or
  • The conduct has the purpose or effect of having a negative impact on a student's educational performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive educational environment.

Examples

  • Pressuring a person for sexual favors
  • Unwelcoming leering, sexual flirtations, or propositions
  • Unwelcome touching of a sexual nature (massaging, grabbing, fondling, stroking or brushing the body, or touching someone's clothes or body in a sexual manner)
  • Unwelcome sexual slurs, threats, verbal abuse, derogatory comments, or sexually degrading descriptions
  • Graphic verbal comments about an indivdual's body, or overly personal conversation
  • Writing graffiti of a sexual nature
  • Distributing sexually explicit texts, pictures, messages, emails, posters, notes, stories, cartoons, drawings (handwritten or computer generated)
