Title IX

The district does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education program or activity that it operates and is required by Title IX not to discriminate in such a manner. The requirement no to discriminate in the education program or activity extends to admissions and employment. Inquiries about the application of Title IX to the district may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator or Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights of the Department of Education, or both.

Such a report may be made at any time (including during 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.

All employees, students, and visitors who have witnessed, heard about, or received a report about any incident or behavior that could constitute sexual harassment under this policy must immediately report such incident or behavior to the district's Title IX Coordinator for investigation.
