Title IX - Sexual Discrimination

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972.  This law protects people from discrimination based on sex, including sexual harassment and sexual assault, in education programs or activities that receive federal funding. Title IX applies to both employees and students. Title IX provides protection for students in connection with all academic, non-academic, educational, extra-curricular, athletic, or other programs sponsored by the school district. Title IX states that:
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." 

What is Sexual Harassment? 

  • Quid pro quo by an employee;
  • Unwelcome conduct that is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to a school’s education program or activity; and/or
  • Sexual assault as defined by the Clery Act, and dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking as defined by the Violence Against Women’s Act. 

Caldwell School District's Responsibility

Title IX requires Caldwell School District to respond to harassment on the basis of sex.  Every employee is required to report behavior or incidents that may be sexual harassment or sexual misconduct. The District must:

  • Provide supportive measures to all parties
  • Investigate what happened
  • Take appropriate steps to resolve the matter
  • Do its best to eliminate the harassment, prevent recurrence, and remedy effects

If you have a discrimination or harassment complaint, please complete the CSD Formal Complaint Form.

If you need to report knowledge of discrimination or harassment witnessed by or reported to you, please complete the Notice to Title IX Coordinator Report Form. 

With the approval of Board Policy 3085 and 3085P, the 2020 Title IX Regulations, specifically 34 CFR Part 106.45(b)(10), mandate the public sharing of materials used to train the Caldwell School District's team members including the Title IX Coordinator and Investigators. As Title IX team members complete additional training, we will add those materials to this page throughout the year. Further, these materials will be available for public inspection in a hard copy format in the Director of Human Resource Office.
