Commitment to a Harassment-Free Learning Environment

The Jacksonville City Board of Education and the Superintendent of Jacksonville City
Schools are committed to creating and maintaining an educational atmosphere
where all individuals can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of
harassment. Every student, employee, and visitor of Jacksonville City Schools should
be aware that sexual harassment violates the law, and Board policy. Students,
parents, and District staff are strongly encouraged to work together to prevent
sexual harassment.

harassment, and will take appropriate action to prevent, to correct, and when

been found to have engaged in acts of sexual harassment will be promptly
disciplined. Student discipline may include, if circumstances warrant, suspension or
expulsion from school.

Any student who believes he or she has been subjected to sexual harassment should
report the harassment to any District administrator, teacher, or the Title IX
