Bullying, Intimidation & Harassment


New Market is committed to
a safe and civil educational environment for all students, empl oyees, parents, customers, vendors, consul tants,
contractors, and volunteers, free from harassment, intimidation or bullying. “Harassment, i ntimidation or bullying” means an
y i ntentional writt
en,
verbal, or physical act, including but not limited to one shown to be motivated by any characteri sti c i n RCW 9A.36.080(3), (r
ace, col or, rel i gi on,
ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or mental or physical disability) or other distingu
ishing characteristi cs, when the i ntenti onal
wri tten, verbal, or physi cal act:




Physi cal l y harms a student, or dam
ages the student’s property



Has the effect of i nterferi ng wi th a student’s educati on; or creates an i nti mi dati ng or thre
ateni ng educati onal en
vi ronment



Has the effect of

di srupti ng the
orderl y operati on of the school


A common theme i n cases of harassment, bullying and intimidation is racial discrimination. Biased attitudes and stereotypes,
racial jokes and sl urs
are i ntolerable, but racial disc
rimination at its worst becomes a hate cri me. A hate cri me is defined as, "Any act, or attempted act to cause physical
i njury, emotional suffering, or property damage through intimidation, harassment, raci al or ethni c sl urs, vandal i sm, force, o
r threat of

force
moti vated al l or i n part by hosti l i ty to the vi cti m's real or percei ved race or ethni ci ty.”




Harassment, i ntimidation or bullying may take many forms i ncluding but not limited to: sl urs, rumors, jokes, i nnuendos, deme
ani ng
comments, drawings, carto
ons, pranks, gestures, physical attacks, threats, or other wri tten, oral or physical actions. “Intenti onal acts”
refers to the individual’s choice to engage in the act rather than the ultimate i mpact of the action(s). Although i t may see
m to i ndividuals
that they are “joking” or that “i t is okay” to make derogatory comments about a person’s race, gender, or physi cal or mental
abi l i ti es;
sexual, racial, or disability harassment will not be tolerated at New Market, at school related activi ti es or at New Mar
ket rel ated work
si tes, job shadow, i nternshi ps or vol unteer si tes.


A copy of the Tumwater School Board Policy (Policy No. 5461) and formal complaint forms are available in the Student Center a
nd the Career Center.


Sexual Harassment


In conjunction with
Policy No. 5461, New Market will not tolerate sexual harassment or sexual vi ol ence. Anyone who has been found, after
appropriate investigation, to have engaged in sexual harassment on New Market property or sponsored acti vi ty wi l l be subject
to di sci pl i na
ry
acti on up to and including discharge, expulsion, and restriction of access to school properties and activi ties. Contact of a

sexual nature between a
New Market staff member and a student i s forbidden i n all ci rcumstances. Persons found to knowingly r
eport or corroborate false allegations wi l l
be subject to appropri ate di sci pl i ne.


Sexual l y harassi ng behavi ors may i ncl ude, but are not l i mi ted to:



Persi stent, unwel come fl i rtati on, advances and/or proposi ti ons of a sexual nature.



Repeated, offensi ve, and

unwel come i nsul ts and/or jokes that are sexual or gender
-
based i n nature.



Repeated, unwel come comments of a sexual nature about an i ndi vi dual's body or cl othi ng.



Del i berate and unwel come touchi ng, such as patti ng, pi nchi ng, huggi ng, or brushi ng agai nst an

i ndi vi dual's body.



Unwel come and offensi ve di spl ays of sexual l y suggesti ve objects or pi ctures.



Pressure for dates or sex, i f unwel come and repeated.



Pressure for dates or sex i n exchange for promoti ons, sal ary i ncreases, or benefi ts.



Stati ng or i mpl yi ng
to an appl i cant that she/he wi l l be hi red wi th sexual rel ati ons as a condi ti on of empl oyment.


Important factors to remember:



Thi rd Party Harassment happens when a person can complain if they are affected by the harassment. They do not have to be the

di re
ct
reci pi ent of the harassment.



Sexual harassment depends on the perspecti ve of the vi cti m, not the i ntent of the harasser.



Retaliation against people who report sexual harassment, or cooperate with i nvestigators, is prohibited by law. False accusat
ions ar
e also
prohi bi ted.



Confi denti al i ty about an i nci dent must be kept at al l ti mes.


A copy of the complete New Market Sexual Harassment Policy (3.101
-
103) and formal complaint forms are available in the Student Center and the
Career Center

I understand that the challenge course activities conducted by New Market Skills Center, the structures and
premises on which they are conducted
and related equipment, may expose participants to certain risks. The
activities require moderate physical exertion, and include a variety of games and initiatives, high and low
challenge course elements (a variety of structures over, through and on which
participants may be asked to
walk, swing or climb, with or without the assistance of staff or co
-
participants) and associated challenge course
climbing activities. Certain of the challenge course elements may be as high as 50 feet off the ground and, whil
e
reasonable measures will be taken to prevent a fall or collision, accidents may occur.


Among the hazards and risks of the activities and use of the premises and equipment are the following: falls;
abrupt and possibly damaging contact with structures a
nd other objects, and other persons; anxieties and fears
associated with heights; close contact with other participants; the carelessness of participants, and
misjudgments on the part of the staff of New Market Skills Center, the failure of structures and
equipment; and
the unpredictable forces of nature. Participants may experience an increased heart rate and other symptoms of
anxiety and stress due to physical exertion, reliance on other participants, and a fear of height or of being
unprotected or falli
ng. Participants and staff may fail to follow proper procedures, instructions and the
operating policies of New Market Skills Center. Injuries associated with participation in this program may
include breaks, sprains, strains, bruises and other contusion
s and in extreme cases, emotional upset, anxiety
and even death.


The description above of these risks is not complete and other unknown or unanticipated risks may result in
property loss, injury or death. Engaging in these activities may require a degree

of skill and knowledge
different from other activities with which participants may be familiar. Participants have responsibilities for
managing the risks to themselves others. The training activities are instructional in nature and participants are
expec
ted to expand and challenge their skills and judgment. Participant and Parent acknowledge that
participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and with full knowledge of the inherent and other risks.

Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks

Understand
ing the nature of the activities and their risks, and that other risks may be encountered which
cannot be reasonably anticipated, I acknowledge and expressly assume all risks of the New Market Skills
Center activities, whether or not described in this docu
ment, known or unknown and inherent or not. I take
full responsibility for any injury or loss, including death, which I, or the minor for whom I sign, my suffer,
arising in whole or part out of my, or the minor’s, enrollment or participation in the activi
ties of New Market
Skills Center.

Release and Indemnity

If I am an adult Participant or the Parent of a minor Participant, I hereby agree, for myself and on behalf of the
minor participant for whom I sign below, TO RELEASE, INDEMNIFY (that is, defend, p
rotect and pay claims ,
including costs and attorneys fees), AND HOLD HARMLESS New Market Skills Center, its agents, and
employees, (“Released Parties”), with respect to any and all claims of injury, disability, death, or other loss or
damage to person or

property suffered by me, by any member of my family, rescuers, co
-
participants, or any
other person, arising in whole or part from my participation in the training or any related activity, WHETHER
ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF A RELEASED PARTY OR OTHERWI
SE, and to the fullest extent
permitted by law.

Additional Provisions


I, an adult Participant or Parent of a minor Participant, authorize New Market Skills Center to provide or obtain
for me, or for the minor, such medical care as it considers necessar
y and appropriate, and I agree to pay all
costs associated with such care and related transportation. New Market Skills Center and any third party
medical care giver are authorized to exchange medical information concerning my, or the minor’s, medical
cond
ition. Any dispute between a Released Party and Parent or Participant will be governed by the substantive
laws of the State of Washington and any mediation or suit shall take place only in that state, in Thurston
County. If the dispute cannot be resolve
d by mutual agreement, I agree to submit it to a mediator recognized
by the Courts of that State and County. I will pay all costs and attorney's fees incurred by any Released Party in
defending a claim or suit brought by me, or by or on behalf of the mino
r participant, if the claim or suit is
withdrawn or to the extent a court or mediator determines that the Released Party is not responsible for the
claimed injury or loss.


This agreement is entered into voluntarily, and after careful considerat
ion. Its terms cannot be
supplemented or amended except in writing. I understand and agree that it is binding, to the fullest extent
allowed by law, upon all persons signing below, their respective heirs, executors, administrators, wards, minor
children (
whether or not they are Participants) and other family members. If any part of this agreement is
found by a Court or other appropriate authority to be invalid, the remainder of the agreement nevertheless
shall be in full force and effect.
