SECTION 12
Discrimination and harassment prohibited
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 2
§ 12. Discrimination and harassment prohibited. 1. No student shall be
subjected to harassment or bullying by employees or students on school
property or at a school function; nor shall any student be subjected to
discrimination based on a person's actual or perceived race, color,
weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice,
disability, sexual orientation, gender, or sex by school employees or
students on school property or at a school function. Nothing in this
subdivision shall be construed to prohibit a denial of admission into,
or exclusion from, a course of instruction based on a person's gender
that would be permissible under section thirty-two hundred one-a or
paragraph (a) of subdivision two of section twenty-eight hundred
fifty-four of this chapter and title IX of the Education Amendments of
1972 (20 U.S.C. section 1681, et. seq.), or to prohibit, as
discrimination based on disability, actions that would be permissible
under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

2. An age-appropriate version of the policy outlined in subdivision
one of this section, written in plain-language, shall be included in the
code of conduct adopted by boards of education and the trustees or sole
trustee pursuant to section twenty-eight hundred one of this chapter and
a summary of such policy shall be included in any summaries required by
such section twenty-eight hundred one.
