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.
