Bullying, Civil Rights & Sexual Harassment
We are committed to a safe and civil educational environment for all students, employees, parents/legal guardians, volunteers, and patrons that is free from harassment, intimidation, or bullying.
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.
Highline Public Schools is committed to a positive and productive education, free from discrimination, including sexual harassment. Sexual harassment means unwelcome conduct or communication of a sexual nature. This commitment extends to all students involved in academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs or activities of the school, whether that program or activity is in a school facility, on school transportation, or at a class or school training held elsewhere. The district prohibits sexual harassment of students by other students, employees, or third parties involved in school district activities.
The district will provide equal educational opportunity and treatment for all students regardless of race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, marital status, honorably-discharged veteran or military status, the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability.
