Title IX of the Educational Amendments

Nondiscrimination and Freedom from Harassment on the Basis of Sex

The statute states: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance

It is the policy of the Francis Howell School District to maintain a learning and working environment that is free from discrimination on the basis of sex in the educational programs, activities, and vocational opportunities offered by the District. The provisions of Title IX extend not only to students with regard to educational opportunities and freedom from harassment, but also to employees with regard to employment opportunities and freedom from harassment, and to individuals with whom the District does business.

It is a violation for any employee of the School District to harass another staff member or student through conduct or communication of a sexual nature. It is also a violation of this policy for students to harass other students through conduct or communication of a sexual nature. It is a violation of this policy for any person who is not an employee or student of the District to harass a staff member or student of the District through conduct or comments of a sexual nature while such employee is engaged in the performance of duties for the District or while such student is under District supervision.

Francis Howell Code of Conduct:
Any person who alleges sexual harassment by a district employee, student, or volunteer may complain directly to a building principal or the District Title IX Coordinator. If an investigation substantiates the allegation of sexual harassment/discrimination, disciplinary action commiserate with the severity of the violation will be taken.
