Title IX

Title IX

The District does not discriminate in any manner, including Title IX sexual harassment, in any District education program or activity. The District has established Title IX personnel to promptly respond to concerns and reports of sexual harassment and assault. All investigations into reports of sexual harassment and assault will be impartial, free of bias and conflicts, and will not prejudge the facts for either side. The District strives to maintain an environment where all students, staff, and greater community feel safe.

 

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities.

For K-12 schools, the definition of a program or activity includes locations, events, or circumstances over which the school exercises substantial control over both the respondent (individual committing the alleged act) and the context in which the sexual harassment occurs.

For a statement describing the rights and responsibilities of victims of sexual harassment or those who are the subject of complaints, contact your school office or visit the district's Title IX - Know Your Rights page.
