Harassment Policies and School Responsibilities
Posted: Thursday, March 3, 2022 - 3:59 PM
The Minnesota State High School League and the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals in collaboration and in following through on the February 24, 2022, Memorandum to the Education Community, are providing additional information for our all Minnesota high schools. The attached Memorandum reminds school administrators of the policies and responsibilities of schools in providing athletic and fine arts programming for their students.
Recent events underscore the responsibility of schools and the importance of the policies adopted by School Districts and the MSHSL. Every school district in Minnesota has a racial, religious, and sexual harassment policy. In addition, the MSHSL has a separate policy governing the conduct of students and its own sexual, racial, religious harassment, violence and hazing policy. Together, these policies create a legal framework governing harassment in all forms.
