Background Check

Title IX

Title IX is a federal statute that prohibits recipients of federal financial assistance from engaging in discrimination on the basis of sex. Sexual harassment is also a form of prohibited discrimination. The U.S. Department of Education recently released regulations on the implementation of Title IX pertaining to sexual harassment complaints.  The regulations were released on May 6, 2020, and training was completed and took effect on August 14, 2020.

With the release of the regulations, the district has established new procedures on how to investigate and respond to sexual harassment complaints. These new procedures apply to everyone.
