Respect for All Letter
Each student and staff member brings to our school community the richness of our city’s cultural diversity and the desire for respect.
It is the policy of the New York City Department of Education to maintain a safe and supportive learning and educational environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying committed by students against other students on account of race, color creed, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship/immigration status, religion, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability or weight. (Chancellor’s Regulation A-832)
It is the policy of the New York City Department of Education to provide equal educational opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, age, creed, ethnicity, national origin, alienage, citizenship status, disability, sexual orientation, gender (sex) or weight. It is also the policy of the DOE to maintain an environment free of harassment on the basis of any of these grounds, including sexual harassment. It is a violation of this policy for any DOE employee to discriminate against or harass a student, including but not limited to verbal, written, or physical acts on school property or at a school function. (Chancellor’s Regulation A-830)
We are committed to promoting respect for diversity among students and between students and staff so that all of our students feel valued, safe and supported.
Any student who believes that s/he has been the victim of bias-based harassment, intimidation and/or bullying should report the incident to the Respect For All Liaison in the school.
Our school’s primary RFA Liaison is Ms. DeVoll. She can be reached by calling the school at (718) 668-8800. In addition, students can report incidents to their guidance counselor.
If a parent feels s/he needs additional assistance, s/he may email RespectforAll@schools.nyc.gov
Any student or parent of a student who feels that the student has been discriminated against by a DOE employee may file a complaint with the DOE’s Office of Equal Opportunity either in writing or orally by contacting:
OFFICE OF Equal Opportunity-Room 1102
65 Court Street
Brooklyn, New York 11201
We look forward to a productive school year as we work together to promote Respect For All.
