CPCS Follows NYCDOE Regulations
It is the policy of the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) to maintain a safe and supportive learning and educational environment that is free from harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying committed by students against other students, and free from discrimination committed by students against other students on account of actual or perceived race, color, creed, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship/immigration status, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, or weight.
Discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying is prohibited in school, during school hours, before or after school, while traveling in vehicles funded by the DOE and on other than school property when such behavior disrupts or would foreseeably disrupt the educational process or endangers or would foreseeably endanger the health, safety, morality, or welfare of the school community.
The following NYC DOE policies further define and prohibit bullying behavior in our school communities, and establish protocols for responding to incidents:
- Chancellor’s Regulation A-832 outlines conduct that constitutes student-to-student discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying, and describes the procedure for reporting, investigating, and resolving complaints of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying.
- Chancellor’s Regulation A-831 outlines conduct and communication that constitutes student-to-student sexual harassment, and describes the procedure for reporting, investigating, and resolving complaints of peer sexual harassment at the school level.
- The Citywide Standards of Intervention and Discipline Measures includes the Discipline Code as well as the Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities, which promotes responsible student behavior and an atmosphere of dignity and respect by establishing guidelines to help students as they strive to become productive citizens in a diverse society.
- These Chancellor’s Regulations address interactions between staff and students:
- Chancellor’s Regulation A-830 prohibits NYC DOE staff members from discriminating against or creating a hostile school environment for a student by conduct and/or verbal or written acts on school property, or at a school function, and sets forth the procedures for reporting and filing complaints.
- Chancellor’s Regulation A-420 defines and prohibits the use of corporal punishment against students and sets forth the procedures for reporting and investigating allegations of corporal punishment.
- Chancellor’s Regulation A-421 defines and prohibits the verbal abuse of students by DOE staff members and sets forth the reporting and investigative requirements for allegations of verbal abuse of students.
