All public school districts are required to have a Title IX Plan. The HSSD Sexual Harassment Title IX Plan addresses sexual harassment by or against all individuals who participate in the school’s activities, including students, employees and third parties. Finally, the plan applies to all complaints against the school students or employees who are alleged to have committed Sexual Harassment in the provision of the school’s education programs and activities.
Any school employee who has knowledge of sexual harassment is required to immediately report any allegations of Sexual Harassment to the Title IX Coordinator.Find the Title IX Complaint form, here.
All public schools have a Title IX Coordinator who oversees the school’s compliance with Title IX requirements. The Title IX Coordinator is an available resource to advise any individual, including a Complainant or Respondent, about the courses of action available, both informally and formally.
