Northwood Middle School
HARASSMENT

It is the policy of Northwood Middle School that all employees and students should be able to work and learn in an environment free from harassment. Harassment - sexual, racial, verbal, or physical - interferes with our efforts to provide a safe and friendly atmosphere at school.

Sexual harassment is unwanted and unwelcome sexual behavior which interferes with your right to get an education or to participate in school activities. It may involve uninvited comments, touching, gestures, jokes, notes, pictures, graffiti, gossip, or intimidation. Sexual harassment may include behavior which is offensive to an observing person, even if that person is not the intended target of harassment.

Racial harassment occurs when racial or other ethnic based verbal conduct or use of physical gesture(s) interferes with an individual’s work or school performance. It also occurs if the conduct creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work or school environment.

Verbal or physical harassment may involve taunting, badgering, heckling, tormenting, or physical intimidation.

The target of harassment and the perpetrator do not need to agree about what is happening; harassment is subjective. At school and at school related activities, behavior which offends or demeans others is harassment, violates school policy, and is illegal.

Harassment will not be tolerated at Northwood Middle School and administrative sanctions, ranging from parent conferences to suspension, will occur, depending on the seriousness of the offense.

Students who feel they are victims of harassment should report their concerns to an adult at school or at home.
