Pursuant to Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (“Title IX”), the District does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities, including employment and admissions. All forms of sex-based discrimination, including sexual harassment are prohibited in the District.
Any person may report sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX, including sexual harassment (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by mail, by telephone, or by electronic mail, using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report. Such a report may be made at any time, including non-business hours, by using the telephone number or electronic mail address, or by mail to the office address listed for the Title IX Coordinator.
At any time during the informal process, the complainant has the right to end the informal process and begin the formal complaint process. The formal complaint process is initiated by the filing of a written and signed complaint by the complainant, the complainant’s parent or legal guardian or the Title IX Coordinator. When the Title IX Coordinator signs a formal complaint, the Title IX Coordinator is not a complainant or otherwise a party. On receipt of a formal complaint, the Title IX Coordinator shall provide written notice to all known parties.
Additional information regarding Title IX and the grievance process can be found under School Board Policy 2.161 (see attachments).
