Title IX

Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states in part that, “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.” Salem-Keizer School District Administration is committed to providing educational and employment opportunities that are free from discrimination based on sex, and promptly investigating reported violations.

This procedure outlines for steps the District will follow to receive, investigate, and resolve complaints of Title IX sexual harassment involving students and/or staff.
