    Dignity for All Students Policy:
    The Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda UFSD seeks to create an environment free of harassment, bullying, and discrimination; to foster civility in its schools; and to prevent conduct which is inconsistent with its educational mission. The district, therefore, prohibits all forms of harassment and bullying of students by employees or other students on school property and at school functions. The district further prohibits discrimination against students, including, but not limited to, those acts based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender, or sex by school employees or other students on school property and at school-sponsored activities and events that take place at locations off school property. In addition, other acts of harassment, bullying, and/or discrimination which can reasonably be expected to materially and substantially disrupt the education process may be subject to discipline or other corrective action.

    The district's Dignity for All Students Policy addresses expectations, the role of the Dignity Act Coordinator, training/awareness, the reporting/investigation process, and more.
