No district employee or student shall be subjected to discrimination in employment or any district program or activity on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. The district is committed to providing equal access and equal opportunity in its programs, services and employment including its policies, complaint processes, program accessibility, district facility use, accommodations and other Equal Employment Opportunity matters.

S-13 Policy:

The Salt Lake City School District Board of Education strives to ensure that all students, including intersex, transgender, and gender nonconforming students, reach their fullest potential by creating safe and supportive environments in our schools. All students deserve respectful and inclusive learning environments that value students’ gender identity and gender expression. The board encourages the development of the school climates where difference is valued for the positive contribution that it makes to creating a more vibrant and diverse community.

  • Personal Electronic Devices

    Personal Electronic Device (PED) Policy

    Rationale:  Elementary students in the Salt Lake City School District are strongly encouraged not to bring a Personal Electronic Device (PED) to school (Board Policy S-11).  Such devices tend to lure students away from focusing on their academic work, may jeopardize student and staff safety/ or privacy, and can create situations that threaten social relationships.  School is also a high-risk setting for theft and damage. 

    Definition of Term:  For purposes of applying this policy, a personal electronic device, or PED, includes any instrument through which a student may:

    · Make or receive a telephone call (all cell phones are PEDs);

    · Send or receive a written message, whether by text, tweet, or other method; create or view a video or animation file;

    · Create or listen to an audio file; take or view a photograph; access the internet; or access any type of video- or computer-based game. 

    Policies:

    1. During school hours, a student enrolled at Liberty Elementary School may not personally possess or have access to a PED while:

    a. In a classroom

    b. In a common area, including playgrounds and restrooms.

    c. Attending a school-sponsored off-campus event such as a friend trip.

    2. A student’s parent or legal guardian may obtain permission for the student to bring a PED to Liberty Elementary School for use other than as prohibited in Section 1 by completing, signing, and returning to Liberty Elementary School a PED Declaration, Acknowledgement, Waiver, and Indemnification form. Devices will not be kept in the office. Students may leave them in their lockers at their own risk.

    3. A violation by a student of Section 1 is grounds for immediate discipline, with or without prior warning(s).
