Policy 3205 Section: 3000 - Students

Sexual Harassment of Students Prohibited

This district is committed to a positive and productive education free from discrimination, including sexual harassment. 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.


For purposes of this policy, sexual harassment means unwelcome conduct or communication of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment can occur adult to student, student to student or can be carried out by a group of students or adults and will be investigated by the District even if the alleged harasser is not a part of the school staff or student body.

The district prohibits sexual harassment of students by other students, employees or third parties involved in school district activities.

The term “sexual harassment” includes:

●       acts of sexual violence;

●       unwelcome sexual or gender-directed conduct or communication that interferes with

●       an individual’s educational performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment;

●       unwelcome sexual advances;

●       unwelcome requests for sexual favors;

●       sexual demands when submission is a stated or implied condition of obtaining an educational benefit;

●       sexual demands where submission or rejection is a factor in an academic, or other school-related decision affecting an individual.

A “hostile environment” has been created for a student when sexual harassment is sufficiently serious to interfere with or limit the student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the school’s program. The more severe the conduct, the less need there is to demonstrate a repetitive series of incidents. In fact, a single or isolated incident of sexual harassment may create a hostile environment if the incident is sufficiently severe, violent, or egregious.

Procedure 3205P Section: 3000 - Students

Sexual Harassment of Students Prohibited - Procedure

The procedure is intended to set forth the requirements of Policy 3205, including the process for a prompt, thorough, and equitable investigation of allegations of sexual harassment and the need to take appropriate steps to resolve such situations. If sexual harassment is found to havecreated a hostile environment, staff must take immediate action to eliminate the harassment, prevent its reoccurrence, and address its effects.

This procedure applies to sexual harassment (including sexual violence) targeted at students carried out by other students, employees or third parties involved in school district activities. Because students can experience the continuing effects of off-campus harassment in the educational setting, the district will consider the effects of off-campus conduct when evaluating whether there is a hostile environment on campus. The district has jurisdiction over these complaints pursuant to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Chapter 28A.640, RCW and Chapter 392-190 WAC.

Title IX Coordinator, Investigator, and Decision-maker

The district will designate and authorize one employee to act as “Title IX Coordinator” to coordinate the district’s state and federal sex discrimination and sexual harassment regulation compliance efforts. The decision-maker who reaches the final determination of responsibility for alleged Title IX sexual harassment will be the Superintendent or designee. The

decision-maker cannot be the same person who serves as the Title IX Coordinator or the investigator of the Title IX complaint.
