KCPS strives to provide all of its students, employees and members of the public with an environment that is free of prohibited discrimination or harassment. Accordingly, it is District policy to prohibit discrimination or harassment against any student, employee or applicant for employment on the basis of sex, race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other factor prohibited by law. In addition, the District will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment on any such basis by employees or any other persons who interact in the workplace, school environment or District-sponsored activities. Students are also prohibited from engaging in discrimination or harassment as defined in the Student Code of Conduct. Discrimination or harassment on these bases is strictly prohibited on school property, in school transportation, in all academic programs and extracurricular activities and at school-sponsored events and activities, regardless of whether or not the event takes place on District property.


The District takes these matters very seriously. Employees engaging in such acts will be subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment. Students will be subject to discipline as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct. Regarding other persons, the District will take action appropriate and necessary to prevent recurrence, which may include banning such persons from District property.

If you feel you have been subjected to discrimination or harassment, please contact the Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Coordinator, the Director of Employee/Labor Relations, or a District administrator immediately.

 
No Retaliation

It is strictly against District policy to retaliate against anyone who reports or assists in making a complaint of prohibited harassment or discrimination and/or who cooperates in any harassment or discrimination investigation. Prohibited retaliation may include, but is not limited to, withholding pay increases, poor evaluations, onerous work assignments, demotion, discipline or dismissal. Irrespective of whether there is merit to the initial complaint of harassment or discrimination, retaliation is viewed as a major offense and will result in discipline up to and including termination in the case of employees.
