Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits recipients of federal financial assistance, including the Clark County School District (CCSD), from discriminating on the basis of sex. CCSD does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs or activities, and is required by Title IX not to discriminate in such a manner.
Above is the Title IX notice of non-discrimination. View the full version of CCSD’s “Non-Discrimination and Accessibility Notice”.
If you experience sexual harassment, you may file a formal complaint or make a report of sexual harassment to CCSD’s Title IX Coordinator. If you see, hear, or otherwise learn of sexual harassment (whether or not you are the person alleged to be the victim), you may make a report to CCSD’s Title IX Coordinator. If you are not sure whether the conduct fits the definition, the conduct should still be reported.
Under Title IX, any employee or official of CCSD who has actual knowledge (sees, hears, or otherwise learns) of sexual harassment that occurred within an education program or activity must promptly report the incident to the CCSD Title IX Coordinator.
In accordance with Title IX, CCSD has designated and authorized the Executive Manager of Diversity and Affirmative Action/ADA and Title IX Program Coordinator to serve as the CCSD Title IX Coordinator.
A complainant (alleged victim) may file a formal complaint or make a report of sexual harassment, and any other person may make a report of sexual harassment under Title IX, in any of the following manners:
