Stop Sexual Assault in Schools
Stop Sexual Assault in Schools (SSAIS.org) provides a practical, one-stop resource for students, families, and school administrators. The SSAIS website educates students about their Title IX right to an education free from sexual harassment and violence, identifies resources for survivors, makes the reporting process simple, provides sample complaints, and empowers through its engaging toolkit programs.
School District Title IX Coordinators
All school districts receiving federal financial assistance must designate at least one employee to coordinate their efforts to comply with and carry out their responsibilities under Title IX. This person is referred to as a Title IX coordinator.
Your school district is required to publish your Title IX coordinator’s contact information in your school’s notice of nondiscrimination, typically found in any bulletins, announcements, publications, catalogs, application forms, or other recruitment materials. The Title IX coordinator’s contact information should also be prominently posted on your school’s website. Title IX coordinators for public school districts can also be found on the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) coordinators website.
In April 2015, U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights released a guidance package emphasizing the responsibility of school districts, colleges and universities to designate a Title IX coordinator. The package also contains an overview of the law’s requirements in several key areas, including athletics, single-sex education, sex-based harassment, and discipline.
