Students and staff 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, such as a school-sponsored field trip.

    Sexual harassment is unwelcome behavior or communication that is sexual in nature when:

    • The conduct substantially interferes with a student's educational performance, or creates an intimidating or hostile educational or employment environment.

    Examples of Sexual Harassment:


    • Pressuring a person for sexual favors
    • Unwelcome touching of a sexual nature
    • Writing graffiti of a sexual nature
    • Distributing sexually explicit texts, e-mails, or pictures
