Non-Discrimination

1

The Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in admission to its programs, services or activities, in access to them, in treatment of individuals, or in any aspect of their operations.  The Academy also does not discriminate in its hiring or employment practices. 

 

All reports of discrimination or harassment will be investigated.  Consequences where warranted may include but are not limited to a range of disciplinary action, which may include expulsion from school if warranted.  Depending on age and circumstances, educational interventions, rather than, or in addition to, discipline shall be appropriate.  Support resources will also be provided to victims of school-related discrimination or harassment as appropriate.  Anyone who retaliates against a person who reports harassment, regardless of the outcome of the harassment investigation, will be subject to disciplinary action.  Any person who knowingly makes a false report of harassment shall be subject to disciplinary action as well.
