The Morgan Hill Unified School District is committed to maintaining a safe and supportive school environment in which all members of the school community are treated with dignity and respect. It is the policy of this District that harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, including perceptions of a person’s identity, appearance or behavior, is expressly prohibited.

The Board considers harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity to be a major offense. The District shall investigate all complaints of discrimination and harassment, and take appropriate action against any student or employee who is found to have violated this policy.

Harassment of a student by another student in violation of this policy constitutes cause for disciplinary action. Harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity are unacceptable conduct and will not be tolerated. A student who experiences or witnesses harassment of a student by another student based on sexual orientation and gender identity should contact the school principal or Compliance Coordinator if they experience such harassment or discrimination. (BP 5751)

If you observe harassment or discrimination of any student based on real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity, you should refer the student to the Compliance Coordinator at your school. It is the Compliance Coordinator’s obligation to investigate all complaints of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity discrimination or harassment in accordance with Board Policy and regulation.
