    Respect for All in NYC Public Schools

    Each student and staff member brings to our public school community the richness of our city’s cultural diversity and the desire for respect.

    It is the policy of the Department to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination on account of actual or perceived race, color, citizenship/immigration status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation or weight. The policy prohibits such behavior by students against other students and by staff against students.

    Respect: esteem for or sense of worth or excellence of a person; proper acceptance or courtesy; regard for the dignity of another’s character; acknowledgment; the condition of being esteemed or honored; to show regard or consideration for another.

    Such discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying is prohibited in school, during school hours, before or after school, while on school property, at school sponsored events, or while traveling on vehicles funded by the Department of Education.

    It is also prohibited on other than school property when such behavior disrupts or would foreseeably disrupt the educational process or endangers or would foreseeably endanger the health, safety, morality or welfare of the school community.

    This Frequently Asked Questions (attached) is a resource for students and parents about how to report incidents, the investigation process, and supports and interventions to prevent and address student-to-student sexual harassment and student-to-student gender-based harassment, bullying, intimidation, and/or discrimination.

    Respect for All

    Students who believe they have been the victim of harassment, discrimination, intimidation and/or bullying by another student or by a staff member, and all students who see or know of such behavior, should report the incident to a school staff member immediately.

    It is the policy of the Department of Education to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination on account of actual or perceived race, color, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship/immigration status, religion, creed, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability or weight.

Students who engaged in prohibited behavior are subject to appropriate intervention and disciplinary action consistent with the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning (Discipline Code) and Chancellor’s Regulation A-443.

    Respect for All in NYC Public Schools

    Each student in NYC public schools brings to our school community the richness of our city’s cultural diversity and the desire for respect. It is the policy of the New York City Department of Education to maintain a safe and supportive learning and educational environment that is free from sexual harassment committed by students against other students. Such harassment is unacceptable conduct and will not be tolerated.

    It is a violation of Chancellor’s A-831 Regulation and the Citywide Standards of Discipline and Intervention Measures for a student to harass another student through conduct or communication of a sexual nature, as defined below.

    Students found guilty of violating this regulation will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action consistent with the Discipline Code and Chancellor’s Regulation A-443. (Sexual harassment of a student by an employee is prohibited, as set forth in Chancellor’s Regulation A-830.)

    This policy is in effect on school grounds, school buses and at all school sponsored activities, programs and events.

    A copy of Chancellor’s Regulations and the Discipline Code are available in the principal’s office and online at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-life/rules-for-students/discipline-code

    What is sexual harassment?

    Student-to-student sexual harassment is conduct and/or communication by a student directed against another student. It may be unwelcome and uninvited sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, sexually motivated physical conduct and other verbal, non-verbal or physical conduct or communication of a sexual nature which is sufficiently severe, pervasive or persistent to:

    • substantially interfere with a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from an educational program, school sponsored activity or any other aspect of a student’s education; or
    • create a hostile, offensive, or intimidating school environment; or
    • otherwise adversely affect a student’s educational opportunities.

    Such behavior can constitute sexual harassment whether it is directed at persons of the same or opposite sex.

    What are some examples of banned behaviors?

    Sexually harassing behavior may take many forms, including but not limited to:

    • engaging in physical conduct of a sexual nature such as patting, pinching, grabbing, brushing up against another person in a sexual way;
    • making sexual comments, remarks, insults, and/ or jokes;
    • displaying, or distributing sexually oriented or suggestive objects, pictures, drawings;
    • making obscene gestures; pressuring for sexual activity; spreading rumors of a sexual nature;
    • engaging in sexually violent or coercive behavior (assault, rape).
    • engaging in a pattern of threatened or actual physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse to control a dating partner

    What should you do if you believe you have been sexually harassed?

    It is the responsibility of each principal to designate a staff member to whom reports of student-to-student sexual harassment can be made.

    Any student who believes that she/he has been the victim of sexual harassment by another student should immediately report the incident to the designated staff member or to any other school staff.

    Complaints should be reported as soon as possible after the incident(s) so they can be effectively investigated and addressed.

    Complaints of harassment may be made verbally or in writing using the Student Complaint/Reporting Form (A-831 and A-832) - all attached.

    Any staff member who witnesses student-to-student sexual harassment or who has knowledge or information or receives notice that a student may have been the victim of such behavior by another student is required to promptly verbally report the alleged act to the Sexual Harassment Prevention liaison or to the principal/designee within one (1) school day and submit the Complaint/Reporting(Open external link) Form describing the incident to the RFA liaison or the principal/designee no later than two (2) school days after making the verbal report.

    What happens to a student who sexually harasses another student?

    The Department of Education prohibits this behavior. Students who violate the Discipline Code will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action as outlined in the Citywide Standards and Chancellor’s Regulation A-831.

    What happens after a complaint is made?

    All reports of sexual harassment will be investigated as soon as possible, but not later than five days after the complaint is made. The principal/designee must take the investigative steps as stated in Chancellor’s Regulation A-831.

    If the principal believes that the alleged conduct constitutes criminal activity, she/he must contact the police. Following completion of the investigation, the principal must issue a written report of his/her findings. This report must be issued within ten school days of receipt of the complaint. The school shall report the results of its investigation of each complaint filed under these procedures in writing to the complainant in accordance with state and federal laws regarding data or records privacy and consistent with the privacy of the alleged harasser.

    The report shall include a determination of whether the allegations have been substantiated and whether they appear to be violations of Chancellor’s Regulation A-831.

    What help is available for students? 

    The student who is victimized, the student who engages in the prohibited behavior, and student witnesses are entitled to receive appropriate supports and interventions, which may include referral to separate school based counseling and/or community-based agencies for counseling, support, and education. These supports can be provided before, during and after the school's investigation of the incident, as needed.
