Sexual Harassment

  • The following is the condensed sexual harassment policy that has been approved by the School Board for our school system. If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Downey, Principal. 

    General: 
    It is the policy of Winchester Public Schools to maintain a working and learning environment for all its students which provides for fair and equitable treatment, including freedom from sexual harassment. It is prohibited for any employee or student, male or female, to harass a student by making unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, or engaging in other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. 

    Complaint Procedure 
    Any student who believes that he or she has been subjected to sexual harassment should file a written complaint of the alleged act immediately to the Title IX compliance officer of the Winchester Public Schools. The written complaint should state in detail the basis for the complaint, the names of the persons involved, and the dates of any specific incidents.
