Civil Rights: Harrassment and Discrimination
Every adult in our school district has a responsibility, when aware of harassment or discrimination, to take action necessary to eliminate it. All incidents of harassment and/or discrimination must be reported to the principal, assistant principal or designee for appropriate recording and follow-up. As stated in the Marblehead Charter School's Anti- Discrimination, Harassment Policy and Equal Educational Opportunities Policy, all complaints will be taken seriously and will be investigated thoroughly and promptly.
There are administrators charged with ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations regarding civil rights.
Finally, the federal and state governments have offices devoted to the enforcement of civil rights legislation:
