Spartanburg School District Seven is committed to providing a safe educational environment by effectively preventing, responding to, and remedying allegations of gender discrimination and sexual harassment. Any student who believes he or she has been subjected to sexual or gender-based harassment is encouraged to report the harassment to their school’s administration. The district is committed to conducting a prompt investigation. Students, parents or staff should note the following contact information should a district-level administrator need to be contacted: Dr. Carlotta Redish, District Level Title IX Coordinator, Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Services, firstname.lastname@example.org; Dr. Sonia Leverette, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services, email@example.com; Mr. Don Mims, Coordinator of Student Services, firstname.lastname@example.org.
School level administrators should be contacted first. Afterwards, district administrators may be contacted. Counseling and educational resources are available to students who have been harassed and to students who are found to have engaged in acts of sexual or gender-based harassment. Under the District’s code of conduct, harassers may be disciplined, including, if circumstances warrant, suspension or expulsion. Students, parents and staff are encouraged to work together to prevent sexual and gender-based harassment.
