Civility Policy

  • The Board of Education is committed to maintaining an orderly, educational and administrative process in keeping the school and the District sites free from disruptions and preventing unauthorized persons from entering school/district grounds.  Members of the District staff will address colleagues, students, parents, and members of the public with respect and expect the same in return.  This policy is not intended to deprive any person of his/her right to freedom of expression, but only to maintain, to the extent possible and reasonable, a safe, harassment-free work place for our pupils and staff.  In the interest of presenting positive role models to the pupils in this District, the Glendale Unified School District expects civil and positive communications.  The District will not tolerate behavior that may appear rude, uncaring, abrupt, or insensitive, volatile, hostile or aggressive actions or loud, obscene, and/or offensive language.  The District seeks employee, student, parent, and public cooperation with this endeavor.  District staff shall be trained to recognize and address behaviors that constitute a disruption in violation of Board Policy.  Employees, students and parents will be informed of this policy and will be provided with the appropriate measures available to them in addressing non-civil behavior.
