Complaint Procedures

McNear School follows the Petaluma Elementary School District’s policies and procedures regarding complaints of discrimination and sexual harassment. Copies of the policies, BP 1312 and 1312.2, are available from our office and on the Petaluma City School District website. The full text of the Petaluma Student Sexual Harassment Policy is printed annually in the District’s School and Community Newsletter. This is sent home annually in McNear’s “First Day Packet” and is available in our office. Students in fifth and sixth grades receive instruction regarding Sexual Harassment annually and whenever their behavior requires it. The District’s “Student Guide to Understanding and Avoiding Sexual Harassment” is used for instruction and for disciplinary reviews.
