Schwartz endorses GLAA call for student anti-harassment policy

COUNCIL OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Washington, D.C. 20001

September 16, 1999

Mr. Bob Summersgill
Vice President for Political Affairs
Gay & Lesbian Activists Alliance
P. O. Box 75265
Washington, D.C. 20013-5265

Dear Bob:

Thank you for the copy of your August 30th letter to Superintendent Arlene Ackerman regarding the lack of a formal policy on student-on-student sexual harassment. I agree that the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) should move swiftly to implement such a policy and feel strongly that it should include provisions to protect gay and lesbian students from harassment.

In addition to pursuing this matter with Superintendent Ackerman, I suggest that you also work with the Board of Education, which has been and will again be the chief policy-making entity for DCPS. I also stand ready to assist you in your efforts to bring a formal policy on student-on-student sexual harassment to our school system.

Sincerely,

/s/ Carol
Carol Schwartz
Councilmember, At-Large
