DISTRITO ESCOLAR UNIFICADO DE LOS ÁNGELES

DECLARACIÓN ANTIDISCRIMINATORIA

El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles está comprometido a proporcionar un ambiente laboral y aprendizaje libre de discriminación y hostigamiento ilegales. El Distrito prohíbe estas prácticas cuando estén motivadas por la edad, la descendencia, el color, la discapacidad mental o física, la identificación con un grupo étnico, el género (incluida la identidad de género), el estado civil, el origen nacional, la raza, la religión (incluida la acomodación religiosa), sexo (real o percibido que incluye el embarazo, el parto o una condición médica relacionada); la orientación sexual en base a la asociación de una persona con un individuo o un grupo, con una o más de estas características reales o percibidas, o por cualquier otro motivo protegido por las leyes, las ordenanzas o los reglamentos federales, estatales o locales. El acoso en base a cualquiera de las categorías protegidas definidas anteriormente, constituye una forma de discriminación ilícita que el Distrito no está dispuesto a tolerar. El acoso se define como la intimidación o la conducta abusiva dirigidas a un estudiante o empleado que produzca un ambiente hostil, y puede traer como resultado medidas disciplinarias en contra del estudiante o el empleado infractor. El hostigamiento puede tomar muchas formas, incluidos los comentarios verbales y los insultos, las declaraciones gráficas y escritas o la conducta físicamente amenazante o humillante. - Pia Damonte, Coordinator; (213) 241-1276.
