File JFA: Student Protection From Harassment

Download

The M.S.A.D. No. 75 Board of Directors believes that every student is entitled to respect, as an individual, from all other members of the school community.  In support of this believe, the Board of Directors recognizes the right of each student to learn and to participate in an environment free of intimidation, ridicule, and hostility, as provided under State and federal law and District policy.


In support of this right, M.S.A.D. No. 75 prohibits harassment or ridicule of students based upon race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, national origin, or handicap.

All students should be advised that they may contact any employee of the School District to report instances of harassment or ridicule.  Students should also be advised of the importance of informing the harasser that his/her behavior is unacceptable.

A staff member who is informed of an instance of possible harassment shall contact the principal of the school as quickly as possible.  The principal shall notify the Superintendent and immediately undertake an investigation of the matter and take (interim) action as may be required.
