Definitions Sex discrimination for purposes of this Title IX policy occurs when an individual, because of his or her sex, is denied participation in or the benefits of any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. It includes when the District, as an employer, refuses to hire, disciplines or discharges any individual, or otherwise discriminates against an individual with respect to such individual’s compensation, terms, conditions or privileges of employment on the basis of the individual’s sex.
Sexual harassment for purposes of this Title IX policy includes any of the three types of misconduct on the basis of sex, all of which jeopardize the equal access to education that Title IX is designed to protect:
Any instance of quid pro quo harassment by a school’s employee;
Any unwelcome conduct that a reasonable person would find so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it denies a person’s equal access to the District’s educational programs or activities*; or
Any instance of sexual assault (as defined in 20 U.S.C.1092 (f)(6)(A)(v)), dating violence (as defined in 34U.S.C. 12291(a)(10)), domestic violence (as defined in 34U.S.C.12291(a)(8)), or stalking, (as defined in 34 U.S.C. 12291(a)(30).
(This definition does not make sexual harassment dependent on the method by which the harassment is carried out.)
*Program or activity includes those locations, events, or circumstances over which the District exercises substantial control over both the alleged harasser (respondent) and the context in which the sexual harassment occurred.
The district has created a COVID 19 Dashboard that will be updated every Friday.

This data is compiled by information families and staff share with our school nurses.
Please remember to contact your school nurse if:
- Your child is having key COVID-19 symptoms,
