The Student Services and Alternative Programs Branch staff provide leadership and technical assistance to local school systems to promote a safe environment conducive to learning and free from bullying and harassment.
A student is harassed when he or she perceives or actually experiences discomfort with identity issues in regard to race, color, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or other identifying characteristics, and whose ability to participate in and benefit from the school's educational programs or activities is adversely affected. Harassment causes harm from discriminatory conduct that is pervasive or severe.
