-Board Policy 4030 Personnel
Sexual harassment is not allowed at any division, office or school site in PUHSD. It is extremely important that students understand what actions and behaviors constitute sexual harassment. Equally important is that students understand that they do not have to put up with any type of sexual harassment, and that they clearly understand what to do if they think they are a victim of it. If you feel that your student is being sexually harassed, or if you witness sexual harassment at any PUHSD site, please contact the administration of that site immediately! Your timely and appropriate action will help create safer schools and a safer community.
