Bullying and Harassment

The Collierville Board of Education has determined that a safe, civil, and supportive environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. In order to maintain that environment, acts of bullying, cyber-bullying, discrimination, harassment, hazing or any other victimization of students, based on any actual or perceived traits or characteristics, are prohibited.

 

Title VI

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance.

 

Title IX

Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX prohibits several types of sex-based harassment such as verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
