Title IX Policy Notification
Title IX is a federal law that was passed in 1972 to ensure that male and female students and employees in educational settings are treated equally and fairly. It protects against discrimination based on gender. The preamble to Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 state 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.”
Title IX requires that each school district have at least one person designated as the Title IX Coordinator. The Coordinator at the Intensive Education Academy is: Ana Maria Alvarez. As required by law this notification serves to inform you of the individual you should contact at the school office to investigate a complaint in the event that you believe there is noncompliance with this regulation.
- The employee or guardian of a student making a Title IX complaint should notify the Title IX Coordinator verbally in person or by telephone - DO NOT leave a voice mail - and then follow up in writing listing: the date of the incident, the individuals involved and the type of discrimination alleged (exclusion from participation, denial of benefit of or subjection to sexual discrimination under any education program or activity).
- The complaint will be brought to administration and, if necessary, a committee consisting of assigned Board of Directors.
- The allegation will be thoroughly investigated and corrective measures taken if necessary.
- The complaint will be addressed to the employee or guardian in writing within 3 days.
- A written response to the employee or parent/guardian making the complaint will be made after the investigation is completed.
