ANNUAL NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION AND ANTI-HARASSMENT

Annual Notice of Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Statement
 
The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religion, or disability. This requirement extends to all of HIDOE’s programs and activities, including employment and admissions as applicable.
 
For the HIDOE high schools that offer Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs of Study in arts and communications, business, health services, industrial and engineering technology, natural resources, and public and human services, there are no admission criteria. HIDOE high schools will take steps to assure that the lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in CTE programs and will provide equal access to designated youth groups.
 
In addition, the HIDOE does not tolerate acts of harassment on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religion, or disability. Any student who believes that he or she has been subjected to harassment on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religion, or disability, is encouraged to report such harassment. Students and parents may report allegations of discrimination or harassment to the school’s administrator or to the HIDOE’s Civil Rights Compliance Office at the address listed below.
 
HIDOE is committed to conducting a prompt investigation. Support, including counseling and educational resources, will be available to students who are harassed, as well as to students found to have engaged in acts of harassment on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religion, or disability. Students found to have engaged in harassment may be disciplined, up to and including suspension or expulsion, if circumstances warrant. Students, parents, and HIDOE staff should work together to prevent harassment on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religion, or disability.
 
HIDOE will not tolerate retaliation for reporting discrimination and/or harassment on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religion, or disability, and will take steps to protect those who wish to report the harassment.
