Title IX Compliance
Title IX Compliance Policy Statement
The Berkeley County Board of Education (“District”) does not discriminate and does not permit the discrimination on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities that it operates. The purpose of this policy and the administrative procedures that implement it is to secure prompt and equitable resolutions of complaints based on sex discrimination, including complaints of sexual harassment, in violation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and violation of District policies that prohibit this type of discrimination. This policy and administrative procedures only applies to complaints alleging discrimination on the basis of sex as prohibited by Title IX including sexual harassment, quid pro quo, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking (as those offenses are defined in the Clery Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), and the Violence Against Women Act, 34 U.S.C. § 12291(a)). This policy and the administrative procedures shall be available in every school site administrative office, posted on the District website, and included in student handbooks.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance. In May of 2020, the United States Department of Education released new Title IX regulations that change the way school districts are required to respond to allegations of sexual harassment. These procedures have been revised accordingly so as to comply with the new Title IX regulations which go into full force and effect on August 14, 2020.
