  • The Waterloo Central School District is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System at Waterloo High School and Waterloo Middle School to strengthen our program of campus safety for students and staff. Part of keeping students and staff safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

    Please read the attached letter below from Superintendent Terri Bavis for more information. There will be new processes and procedures in place when visiting our schools.

    Thank you for your continued support.

    The VISION of the Waterloo Central School District is to become the best rural school in the heartland of New York. We will achieve this by focusing on high academic excellence by providing for ALL a variety of instructional strategies to meet individual needs for future success.

  • The Waterloo Central School District affirms that no person shall be subjected to discrimination, denied benefits, or excluded from participation in employment or in any educational program or activity on the basis of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, color, ethnicity, religion, creed, national origin, marital status, disability, or on any other basis in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title IX, Title IV, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other federal or state laws.  The Waterloo Central School District provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.

    The Waterloo Central School District encourages students, parents, staff, and community members to report any harassing, bullying, abusive, or unsafe behavior as soon as possible to a school district official, or when appropriate, to law enforcement.

    Superintendent Terri Bavis serves as the Compliance Officer/Coordinator and is authorized to coordinate and carry out the responsibilities of the district under this policy and to coordinate compliance with the regulations and to process any complaint and/or grievance that may be filed in accordance with the grievance procedure heretofore adopted by the District’s Board of Education.  Ms. Bavis can be reached at 315-539-1501; via email at Terri.Bavis@waterloocsd.org; or via mail at the District Office: 109 Washington Street, Waterloo, NY 13165.

    The Waterloo Central School District also prohibits all harassing conduct based on gender, race, sexual orientation, or any other status protected by state or federal law.  The Waterloo Central School District considers harassing conduct to be an abuse contrary to the high moral ethical standards of an educational institution.

    Harassing conduct generally consists of subjecting an individual, on the basis of his/her membership in a protected class, to conduct and/or communications that are sufficiently severe, pervasive, or persistent as to have the purpose or effect of: creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment; substantially or unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or a student’s educational performance, opportunities, benefits, or well-being; or otherwise adversely affecting an individual’s employment or educational opportunities.

    Harassing conduct can include unwelcome verbal, written, or physical conduct which offends, denigrates, or belittles an individual because of his/her membership in a protected class.  Such conduct includes, but is not limited to, derogatory remarks, jokes, demeaning comments or behavior, slurs, mimicking, name-calling, graffiti, innuendo, gestures, physical contact, stalking, threatening, bullying, extorting, or the display or circulation of written materials or pictures.

    The Waterloo Central School District will not tolerate the use of a position of authority to obtain sexual favors in supervisor/employee or faculty/student relationships.  Neither will it condone expressions or actions by any person affiliated with the School District that in any manner constitute sexually harassing conduct, including student-to-student harassment.  Attempts to suppress the report of such actions or to retaliate for the presentation of a report will be considered in the same light as the offending behavior.

    Inquiries concerning the application of this policy may also be referred to the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR), 32 Old Slip, 26th Floor, New York, NY 10005, Telephone: 646-428-3900.
