Harassment info:

One of the bills passed by the state legislature this past Spring requires each LEA to send, by September 1 of each school year, “a notice to each student, parent, and LEA staff member stating the LEA’s commitment to maintaining a school climate that is free of harassment and discrimination.

Dear parents, staff, and students:

Advantage Arts Academy is committed to maintaining a school climate that is safe, welcoming, and free of harassment and discrimination. The School prohibits all forms of harassment, and it does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, citizenship status, or genetic information.

We encourage anyone who believes they (or someone else) have been subjected to harassment or discrimination at the School to file a complaint with the School’s Principal/Title IX Coordinator. The School will promptly investigate and resolve all such complaints in accordance with School policy.

If you would like to learn more about how the School handles complaints of harassment or discrimination, please review the School’s Notice of Nondiscrimination and its Civil Rights Policy on the School’s website.
