Harassment of Staff

File: ACB

The Lake Washington School District recognizes its responsibility to provide a working/ educational environment that is free from all types of discrimination, and harassment, including sexual harassment, bullying, and intimidation as defined in Harassment Policy/ Procedures (ACB-R).

Appropriate consequences for students who violate this policy will be specified in the student code of conduct for each building and district policy JG-Student Discipline. Any staff member who has been found, after appropriate investigation, to have harassed another employee or student will be subject to disciplinary action and/or discharge, as appropriate pursuant to collective bargaining agreements and state and federal laws. If a certified educator is found to have committed a violation of WAC 181-87, commonly called the Code of Conduct for Professional Educators, OSPI’s Office of Professional Practices may propose disciplinary action on the certificate, up to and including revocation.

The superintendent shall provide procedures for receiving and investigating an allegation from any staff member or student subjected to harassment. Procedures for reporting harassment of staff members are found in Policy ACB-R. Procedures for allegations of harassment against students are found in Policy JFB-R.
