No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
All individuals who are employed by ASA are required to conduct themselves at all times in a manner that provides an atmosphere free from sexual harassment. Any person who engages in sexual harassment while acting as a member of the school community or while on ASA property will be in violation of ASA employment policy and subject to disciplinary action by Administration. Sexual harassment consists of unwelcome or inappropriate sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when made by a member of the school staff to a student or another staff member, or by a student to another student or staff member. Anyone who is subject to sexual harassment or who knows of the occurrence of such conduct should inform their immediate supervisor or Administration.
All matters involving sexual harassment complaints will remain confidential unless disclosure is required by law or is determined to be necessary to the implementation of this general policy by Administration or the Board of Directors. Confirmation of harassment by an ASA employee may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
ASA conforms with the Federal Title IX. All employees must participate in required trainings and sign the policy of understanding annually.
