…Prohibited harassment includes physical, verbal, non-verbal, or written conduct based on one of the categories listed above that is so severe and pervasive that it affects a student's ability to participate in or benefit from an educational program or activity; creates an intimidating, threatening, hostile, or offensive educational environment; has the purpose or effect of substantially or unreasonably interfering with a student's academic performance; or otherwise adversely affects the student's educational opportunities.

The Board also prohibits any form of retaliation against any student who files a complaint or report regarding an incident of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying.

Students who engage in discrimination, harassment, intimidation, bullying, or retaliation in violation of law, Board Policy, or Administrative Regulation shall be subject to appropriate discipline, up to and including counseling, suspension and/or expulsion.
