Nondiscrimination in Scarsdale Public Schools
The Scarsdale Public School District is committed to providing a healthy and productive environment for all students and employees that promotes respect, dignity and equality and is free of all forms of discrimination. To that end, we have adopted policies and practices that support and reinforce this stance on nondiscrimination in keeping with Titles VI, VII and IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and subsequent amendments and additions.
To Report a Complaint: Contact Title IX officer Carol Priore (TitleIX@scarsdaleschools.org | 914-721-2417)
SEXUAL HARASSMENT POLICY
Sexual harassment of a member of the school community by another member of the community is a violation of school policy. Sexual harassment can include (but is not limited to) harassment based on sex, real or perceived sexual orientation, or gender identity. The district has a policy that is designed to implement specific procedures on reporting, investigating and remedying complaints of sexual harassment consistent with the District's policy. They are intended to create and preserve an educational and working environment free from unlawful harassment in furtherance of the District's commitment.
If a member of the school community feels they s/he has been treated inappropriately or harassed, s/he should speak with a counselor, youth outreach worker, school psychologist, administrator, or trusted adult in the building. The district has a Title IX Compliance Officer that can be a resource as well. Carol Priore, Interim Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Leadership Development, has been appointed by the Board to serve in that capacity and she can be reached at (914) 721-2417.
