  • creates a hostile environment when the conduct is sufficiently severe, pervasive or persistent so as to interfere with or limit a student's ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or opportunities offered by an institution
  • causes a student to believe he/she must submit to the conduct in order to participate in a school program or activity or that an educational decision will be made based on whether or not the student submits to the conduct
  • meets the definition of stalking, dating violence, fondling, incest, rape or statutory rape
  • involves any form of sexual discrimination, harassment, misconduct and/or violence
