Title IX

It is the policy of this school district to prohibit any act of harassment of students or employees by other students based upon race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability or based upon any other prohibited category on district property and at district events including at school, in the workplace or at any school event or activity.  Any such act by a student or employee shall result in prompt and appropriate discipline, including the possible termination of employment or suspension or expulsion of the student.

5. Provides for reasonably prompt time frames for the conclusion of the grievance process.

6. Describes the range of possible disciplinary sanctions and remedies following a determination of responsibility.
