Florence School District Two, as required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and its corresponding regulations (“Title IX”), does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs or activities. Title IX prohibits gender-based harassment, which may include acts of verbal, nonverbal, or physical aggression, intimidation, or hostility based on sex even if those acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature. The District prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of sex or gender in all of its programs and activities by its employees, students, or third parties.
Florence School District Two will respond promptly to actual knowledge of sexual harassment in an education program or activity of the District against a person in the United States in a manner that is not deliberately indifferent. The response will treat complainants and respondents equitably.
The District’s grievance procedures and process for filing a complaint of sex discrimination or filing a formal complaint of sexual harassment can be found in District Board Policy GBAA, GBAA-R, JIAA, and JIAA-R, located on the District’s website.
