- Human Rights
It is the policy of St. Andrew’s School that sexual harassment of its students or employed personnel will not be tolerated. Any student, faculty member, or other employee guilty of behavior or actions constituting sexual harassment of another member of the school community will be dealt with seriously; offenders will be subject to disciplinary action, including dismissal. The School will enforce this policy with respect to employees of outside contractors doing business at the School as well.
Sexual harassment includes repeated acts, either verbal, written or physical, directed toward another person by offending or intimidating them through sexually-related references or actions. Such acts can be intentional or inadvertent. Touching, flirting, suggestive remarks, jokes with sexual connotations, gesturing, and leering are just some examples of actions that may constitute sexual harassment. Email, text-messages, or social media messages that are offensive, rude or sexually suggestive are included under this harassment policy.
Students should see the Head of School immediately if they feel that they have been the victim of sexual harassment.
The Head of School may take unilateral action against students involved in sexual harassment; he may decide to act without using the committee process.
