Nondiscrimination Policy and statement

The Board of Education desires to provide a safe school environment that allows all students equal access and opportunities in the District's academic and other educational support programs, services, and activities. District schools, programs, activities, and practices shall be free from unlawful discrimination, including discriminatory harassment, intimidation, and bullying targeted at any student by anyone based on the student’s actual or perceived race, color, ancestry, national origin, nationality, ethnicity, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression or genetic information or association with a person or a group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.  

This policy shall apply to all acts related to school activity or school attendance occurring within a District school, and to acts which occur off campus or outside of school-related or school-sponsored activities but which may have an impact or create a hostile environment at school.  (Excerpt from SFUSD Board Policy 5145.3)  

If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying, you should immediately contact the school site principal and/or Executive Director of the Office of Equity (CCR Title 5 and Title IX Officer), Keasara (Kiki) Williams, at 415-355-7334 or equity@sfusd.edu. 

If you have concerns related to Section 504, you should contact your school site principal and/or District Section 504 Coordinator, Michele McAdams at mcadamsd@sfusd.edu.
