About Title IX - Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, often referred to as Title IX, is a Federal civil rights law.  Title IX, which began with a focus on discrimination and ensuring equity in sports, includes a major focus on prevention of and response to incidents of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Title IX Coordinators

The Kalida Local School District's Title IX coordinator has knowledge of all Title IX requirements, the district's policies and procedures on sex discrimination, and of all complaints throughout the district that raise Title IX Issues.

The Title IX coordinator's responsibilities include:

  • Tracking the district's response to reports and complaints of sexual harassment
  • Determining the appropriate response and remedial actions
  • Identifying and addressing any patterns or systemic problems revealed by such reports and complaints.

 

What is Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment?

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is any unwanted, non-consensual sexual contact against any individual by force (against a person's will) or when a person cannot give consent (under the age of consent, intoxicated, developmentally disabled, mentally/physically unable to consent, etc.).

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is unwelcome behavior or communication that is sexual in nature when:

  • A student or employee is led to believe that he or she must submit to unwelcome sexual conduct or communications in order to gain something in return, such as a grade, a promotion, a place on a sports team, or any educational or employment decision, or
  • The conduct substantially interferes with a student's educational performance, or creates an intimidating or hostile educational or employment environment.


Know Your Rights


Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities.

All public and private elementary and secondary schools, school districts, colleges, and universities receiving any Federal funds must comply with Title IX.

 

How to Get Help or File a Complaint

If you are not sure whether you should make a formal complaint, you can contact the Title IX Coordinator listed above. 

The Title IX coordinator can help you decide if any action needs to be taken and how best to address your situation.

If you believe that you or a Kalida Local Schools student or staff member has been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted, you should report the incident(s) to any school staff member or the district's Title IX coordinator.
