Human Dignity Policy   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education, recognizing that we are a multiracial, multiethnic, multilingual school district, believes it is part of our mission to provide a positive harmonious environment in which student unity and respect for the diverse makeup of the school community is promoted. Human dignity is reflected in attitudes and behaviors toward others and self. Human dignity is characterized through respect, sensitivity, and care exhibited in the interaction of staff and students. A major aim of education in the district is the development of a reasoned commitment to the core values of a democratic society.

In accordance with this aim, the school district will not tolerate behavior by students, staff, or visitors which insults, degrades, or stereotypes any race, gender, disability, physical characteristics, ethnic group, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or religion.

Appropriate consequences for offending the Human Dignity Policy will be specified in the student code of conduct of each school or department. Staff members offending this policy will be disciplined in accordance with provisions of district policy and the appropriate employee master contract.
