Title IX and Student Protections

  • The Office of Title IX works to ensure the school district is free from sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence through our three units. 

    The Title IX Office will work with you to hear your report, investigate, and create safety measures at school. We can also provide guidance on reporting to the police, or getting other supports such as counseling. 

What We Do
