Policy for Respect & Against Slurs

Everyone Deserves Respect

(As presented in the SFUSD “Student Handbook” 9/2009)

 Slurs are not always acknowledged as being painful and oppressive. Using any derogatory term attacks a person's self esteem. Students should treat all persons equally and respectfully and refrain from the willful or negligent use of slurs against any person on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
