In Washington State, each student should have equal access to public education without discrimination. If parents, students, school staff, or community members believe that a student has experienced discrimination or discriminatory harassment, there are steps they can take to resolve those concerns and eliminate the conduct or conditions that led to the problem.
Discrimination is the unfair or unequal treatment or harassment of a person because they are part of a group, defined by law, as a protected class. A protected class is a group of people who share common characteristics and are protected from discrimination and harassment under state and federal law. These groups are protected classes under Washington State law:
Race and Color, National origin, Religion and creed, Sex, Disability
Sexual orientation, Gender expression, gender identity, Veteran or military status, use of a trained dog guide or service animal
Discriminatory harassment is harassment based on a protected class. It can take many forms: threats, name-calling, derogatory jokes, physical assault, or other conduct that is physically threatening, harmful or humiliating could be a few examples of discriminatory harassment.
