Important policy for all parents and students to know
With the new year fully underway, we want to make sure all families are aware of an important piece found in the Parent-Student Handbook:
Harassment Based on Disability
MNPS embraces every child and is committed to taking immediate action to eliminate any harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects. If a student believes he or she has been subjected to harassment on the basis of disability, the student is encouraged to report the harassment to MNPS 504 Coordinator in accordance with the Section 504 Grievance Policy and Procedure, SBO 1.111. Individuals who engage in harassment on the basis of disability will be disciplined appropriately, up to and including a suspension and expulsion for students and suspension and dismissal for teachers. The district encourages students and parents to work with MNPS staff to prevent harassment on the basis of disability.
