What is Title IX?
Our goal is to promote an educational environment and workplace that is free of all forms of discrimination based on protected classes, sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, and retaliation. GNBVT will not tolerate any such behaviors, all of which are prohibited by both law and the school’s Title IX Sexual Harassment Grievance Procedure. The procedure is also available in Portuguese and Spanish, We will keep our school and surrounding communities safe by responding effectively and immediately if an incident occurs.
Retaliation against individuals who file complaints of alleged sexual harassment or those who participate, refuse to participate, or assist in the investigation of complaints is expressly prohibited. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states 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.”
New Title IX regulations were added to the Educational Amendments of 1972 that went into effect on August 14, 2020. The regulations imposed a detailed grievance and investigative process, as outlined below. The Title IX regulations require that all schools receiving federal funding must abide by these rules.
