Sexual Harassment Policy and Complaint Procedures

SEXUAL HARASSMENT POLICY NOTICE

The Greenfield Union School District is committed to maintaining a safe workplace and learning environment that is free of sexual harassment and retaliation. The Board of Education prohibits sexual harassment of students, job applicants, employees, contractors, or any other individuals including but not limited to parents and vendors. The Board also prohibits retaliatory behavior or action against persons who complain, testify, assist or otherwise participate in investigations of complaints regarding sexual harassment. Sexual harassment may, in certain circumstances, be a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended, and/or Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as well as California law. All persons including applicants, employees, students and independent contractors are protected under this policy.

How to File a Discrimination, Bullying or Harassment Complaint

The district believes discrimination, harassment, and bullying issues may be resolved at the school site. As such, students, parents/guardians may report:

Any act of discrimination, harassment, or bullying by a student, staff member or third party to the site principal. The responsible school official will conduct a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation into the complaint. A student or parent/guardian is not required to attempt resolution through the school site before contacting the District Title IX Coordinator.

When sexual harassment is reported, interim steps will be taken to stop harassment and protect the victim from further harassment pending outcome of the complaint. At any time during the complaint process students or parent/guardian may contact the Title IX Coordinator to file a complaint directly with the district. A student or parent is not required to attempt resolution through the school site before contacting the District Title IX Coordinator.
