What can I do about a bully, harassment, or gender access issues?

posted Jul 7, 2015, 4:52 AM by District Webmaster   [ updated Jul 25, 2018, 8:59 AM by Granger Meador ]

The district has policies against bullying and harassment. If someone is bullying you, or you know that someone is being bullied, your school counselor would be a great person to talk to.  Parents can also use the anonymous Crime Stoppers service to report issues, but talking directly to an adult at the school is best.

You can also report issues at the district level. Bullying issues are handled by the Safe & Healthy Schools Coordinator, while harassment and gender access issues are handled by the Title IX coordinator.

SAFE & HEALTHY SCHOOLS COORDINATOR

Kerry Ickleberry is the district’s Safe and Healthy Schools coordinator and handles its anti-bullying program. She is housed at the high school.

What is Title IX?

Title IX  of the Education Amendments of 1972 states:

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.

Scope of Title IX

Title IX applies to institutions that receive federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education, including state and local educational agencies. Educational programs and activities that receive those funds must operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. Some key issue areas in which recipients have Title IX obligations are: recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; athletics; sex-based harassment; treatment of pregnant and parenting students; discipline; single-sex education; and employment. Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or who has made charges, testified or participated in any complaint action under Title IX.
