SCCPSS sexual harassment policy


The story of a six year old accused of sexual harassment has received a lot of buzz after the boy was suspended from a Colorado school for kissing a girl on the cheek.

School officials are accusing him of sexual harassment and they want it on his school record.

The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System code of conduct states that sexual harassment is the unwanted physical contact or unwanted sexual advances from one student to another.

"At the end of the day, administrators and out campus police have to fully look at the situation," said Kurt Hetager with Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools. "Take in all facts, so the guidelines and the rules that we see by the policy they simply set that precedent for us to follow, but it's up to the administrators and our campus police department to take in the facts and make the final determination on discipline."

The guidelines for sexual harassment for Savannah-Chatham County public schools apply to all students, from pre-k to 12th grade.
