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, that occur at school, on the school bus, or off campus during school-sponsored events.  

The Green Bay Area Public School District 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, career and technical education, co-curricular, student services, recreational or other programs or activities, or in admission or access to any programs or activities offered by the District.   It is the District’s policy to protect all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

How do I report an incident of sexual harassment?

Any student (or the parent/guardian of a student) who believes he/she has been subjected to sexual harassment or sexual violence by another student, District employee or other person should immediately report the incident. The complainant may report the alleged sexual harassment or sexual violence to any principal, teacher, counselor, social worker or other District employee who shall be responsible for forwarding the complaint to the District’s Title IX Coordinator for review and action as necessary.  Complaints can be made orally or in writing.

Alternatively, complaints can be made by completing the Discrimination & Harassment Complaint Form.

Complaint Process

All complaints of sexual harassment or sexual violence against District students shall be investigated in a timely manner.   Investigations will be adequate, reliable and impartial,  allowing the opportunity for both the alleged target(s) and the alleged perpetrator(s) to identify witnesses and evidence.  The District’s investigation will be separate from any corresponding investigation by any law enforcement or child protection agency.

Where necessary, the District will take immediate steps to protect the alleged target pending the final outcome of the investigation. Such interim measures may include, but are not limited to, ensuring the alleged target continues to have equal access to the District’s education programs and activities, protection from the alleged perpetrator and from any retaliation, academic accommodations and altered schedules or activities.

If the parent/guardian of either the alleged target or alleged perpetrator disagrees with the District’s conclusions, they may appeal the negative determination to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. In order to work collaboratively with the parent/guardian to seek a timely and amicable resolution, the District requests an appeal first to the Associate Superintendent of PreK-16, and subsequently to the Superintendent of Schools and Learning, prior to submitting an appeal to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
