What should you do if you are experiencing harassment or discrimination?
Please contact your local GSA Network for support and guidance. While we cannot provide you with direct legal advice, we can help you make decisions about what steps make the most sense for you. We can help you prepare a plan for talking to school administrators about your rights and their obligation to protect you. We can help you learn how to file a complaint at your school or how to bring a complaint to the state or federal authorities. We can also refer you to one of the many legal organizations that can help advocate for you. Link to Contact us page. We need to add our phone #s & addresses to that page.
