Title IX - Student Rights

The Board of Education is committed to maintaining a safe school environment that is free from harassment and discrimination. The Board prohibits, at school or at school-sponsored or school-related activities, sexual harassment targeted at any student by anyone. The Board also prohibits retaliatory behavior or action against any person who reports, files a complaint or testifies about, or otherwise supports a complainant in alleging sexual harassment.

Title IX Complaint Procedures

The Governing Board believes that positive relationships between CUSD employees and citizens are essential to the successful operations of schools. The Board encourages complainants to resolve problems early and informally whenever possible with the staff member personally. If a problem remains unresolved, the individual should submit a formal written complaint with the supervisor of the employee in accordance with appropriate district procedures. 

Title IX Statutes of Limitations

The Governing Board recognizes that the district has the primary responsibility to ensure compliance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs. The Board encourages the early, informal resolution of complaints whenever possible and appropriate. To resolve complaints which cannot be resolved through such informal process, the Board shall adopt the uniform system of complaint processes specified in 5 CCR 4600-4670 and the accompanying administrative regulation.
