Sexual Harassment (Title IX)

The District recognizes the responsibility to provide an environment for students and staff that is free of sexual harassment and intimidation. The district policies on sexual harassment will be posted in each building and are available upon request to all employees and students. A District-wide effort to explain to students what sexual harassment is and what behavior is unacceptable has been integrated into the curriculum in accordance with the policy on character education.

New York State has established a free and confidential telephone hotline that employees can use to report incidents of sexual harassment to the New York State Division of Human Rights.  The hotline number is 1-800-HARASS-3 (or 1-800-427-2773), and the hotline will be staffed by pro bono attorneys who have expertise in providing legal advice regarding employment law and sexual harassment issues.  The hotline can be called Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
