Sexual Harassment

Policy 3700 Prohibition Against Sexual Harassment: For purposes of this policy, sexual harassment means unwelcome conduct or communication of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment can occur adult to student, student to student or can be carried out by a group of students or adults and will be investigated by the district even if the alleged harasser is not a part of the school staff or student body. The district prohibits sexual harassment of students by other students, employees or third parties involved in school district activities.

For a description of the sexual harassment complaint and remedy process, please refer to Procedure 3700 Prohibition Against Sexual Harassment.

Sexual Harassment Education Videos

A group of community leaders came together in 2022 to help educate our community about sexual assault through a series of public service announcements. Speakers are from Bainbridge Youth Services, Bainbridge Island School District, Bainbridge Island Police Department, and Virginia Mason, and each speaks to its roles and responsibilities when a sexual assault allegation is made. While each organization has a different role and varying legal obligations and constraints, they each play an important role in supporting the survivors of sexual assault.
