Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying
The Port Townsend School District strives to provide students with optimal conditions for learning by maintaining a school environment where everyone is treated with respect and no one is physically or emotionally harmed.
In order to ensure respect and prevent harm, it is a violation of district policy for a student to be harassed, intimidated, or bullied by others in the school community, at school-sponsored events, or when such actions create a substantial disruption to the educational process.  The school community includes all students, school employees, school board members, contractors, unpaid volunteers, families, patrons, and other visitors.  Student(s) will not be harassed because of their race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, including gender expression or identity, mental or physical disability, or other distinguishing characteristics.
Any school staff who observes, overhears, or otherwise witnesses harassment, intimidation , or bullying or to who such actions have been reported, must take prompt and appropriate action to stop the harassment and to prevent its reoccurrence.  Please review the following policy regarding harassment, intimidation, and bullying.
If you have any questions or concerns about the policy, please contact the District Compliance Officer, Amy Khile at 379-4603, or
