    Discrimination is conduct which affords a student different treatment solely on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity in a manner which interferes with or limits the ability of the student to participate in our benefit from the services, activities, or programs of the school. 
    Harassment is conduct which solely on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, disablity, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity: 
    • affords a student different treatment in a manner which interferes with or limits the ability of the student to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or programs of the school; or
    • subjects a student to treatment which is sufficiently severe, pervasive, or persistent so as to have the purpose or effect of creating a hostile environment or of interfering with a student's performance or ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or programs of the school. 

    Bullying is any act that recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health, or safety of a student or that substantially interferes with a student's educational benefits, and that takes place on or immediately adjacent to district grounds, at any district-sponsored activity, on district-sponsored transportation, or at any district bus stop.
