Student Sexual Harassment/Title IX



Sexual Harassment of students by employees or other students is unlawful behavior and will not be permitted. The Board is committed to providing an academic environment that is free of unlawful sexual harassment and will seek to utilize available measures to deter such conduct. 


What is Title IX?

Title IX Is a federal statute that prohibits sex discrimination in any educational program or activity receiving federal funds. Title IX states: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."

Title IX protects students, employees and applicants for employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination. All students (as well as other persons) at institutions /districts that receive federal funds are protected by Title IX - regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, race, or national origin – in all aspects of a recipient's educational programs and activities (OCR Title IX Resource Guide).
