Title IX, Harassment, Intimidation, Discrimination and Bullying
Transformational Education Inc./TEAM Charter Schools desires to provide a safe school environment that allows all students equal access and opportunities in academic and other educational support programs, services, and activities. TEAM prohibits unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any student based on actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, gender non- conformance, or gender stereotyping; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.
TEAM recognizes it is legally responsible for addressing harassment incidents about which it knows or reasonably should have known. TEAM employees shall take immediate and appropriate action to investigate or otherwise determine what occurred when put on notice that a student has been subjected to harassment.
Federal Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), implemented at 34 C.F.R. § 106.31, subd. (a), provides that no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any academic, extracurricular, research, occupational training, or other education program or activity operated by a recipient which receives federal financial assistance. Relevant here, Title IX requires school districts to take immediate and appropriate action to investigate when it knows or reasonably should know of a possible Title IX violation.
