Student Sexual Harassment Policy

JCS is committed to making the school free from sexual harassment. This means that we prohibit harassment made by someone from or in the educational setting. Sexual harassment can be such actions as unwelcome sexual advances; requests for sexual favors; or verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature made by someone from or in the educational setting.

The school prohibits conduct that has the purpose or effect of having a negative impact on the student’s academic performance, or of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational environment.

JCS further prohibits sexual harassment in which a student’s grades, benefits, services, honors, program or activities are dependent on submission to such conduct.

How to File a Discrimination, Bullying or Harassment Complaint

JCS believes discrimination, harassment, and bullying issues may be resolved at the facility. As such, students, parents / guardians may report:

Any act of discrimination, harassment, or bullying by a student, staff member or third party to the site coordinator. The responsible school official will conduct a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation into the complaint. A student or parent / guardian is not required to attempt resolution through the school before contacting the Executive Director.

When a sexual harassment is reported, interim steps will be taken to stop harassment and protect the victim from further harassment pending outcome of the complaint.

Enrollment / Disenrollment Notice

Charter schools are not allowed to discourage a pupil from enrolling or seeking to enroll in the charter  school because the pupil exhibits any characteristics such as students with disabilities, academically low achieving, English learners, neglected or delinquent, homeless, socially economically disadvantaged,  foster youth, or based on nationality, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Charter schools are not  allowed to request a pupil’s records before enrollment or encourage a child who is enrolled in a charter  school to disenroll or transfer to another school. A parent, guardian, or pupil (18 years or older) may file  a Charter School Complaint Form to the authorizing entity if they suspect the charter school is in  violation of Education Code Section 47605(e)(4).
