Title IX

What is Title IX:

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (“Title IX”) is a federal law intended to ensure sex and gender equality and protect students against sexual harassment in all school programs and activities, including extracurricular, athletic and other programs.

School District 87 is committed to providing an environment where every student feels supported, welcomed and respected and as such shall not discriminate against any person on the basis of sex in any of its curricular, extracurricular, student services, athletic or other programs offered by the District. It is the District’s policy to protect all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

The District strongly encourages any student who feels that he/she is being or has been sexually harassed on school grounds or at a school-sponsored or school-related activity by another student or an adult who has experienced off-school sexual harassment that has a continuing effect at school to immediately contact his/her teacher, the principal, or any other available school employee. Any employee who receives a report or observes an incident of sexual harassment shall notify the principal or a District compliance officer. Once notified, the principal or compliance officer shall take the steps to investigate and address the allegation.
