TITLE IX AND SEX DISCRIMINATION - POLICY 3421, Adopted November 8, 2021
The District is committed to creating and maintaining educational programs and activities which are free from discrimination and harassment. This policy addresses complaints of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, made under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and its implementing regulations (Title IX). It is just one component of the District's overall commitment to maintaining a discrimination and harassment-free educational and work environment.
Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any education program or activity operated by a district that receives federal financial assistance. As required by Title IX, the District does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs and activities or when making employment decisions.
The District adopts this policy as part of its effort to provide for the prompt and equitable resolution of complaints of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment. The District will promptly respond to reports of sex discrimination, ensure that all investigations are conducted within a reasonably prompt time frame and under a predictable fair grievance process that provides due process protection for complainants and respondents, and impose sanctions and implement remedies when warranted.
Inquiries about this policy or the application of Title IX may be directed to the District's Title IX Coordinator(s), the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights of the United States Department of Education, or both.
The District has designated and authorized the following District employees to serve as its Title IX Coordinators:
Paul Rogers, 5550 School Road, Gainesville, NY 14066, (585) 493-2571, firstname.lastname@example.org
