On August 14, 2020, the Secretary of Education amended the regulations implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX). The final regulations specify how recipients of Federal financial assistance covered by Title IX, including elementary and secondary schools as well as post-secondary institutions, must respond to allegations of sexual harassment consistent with Title IX’s prohibition against sex discrimination.
Among other goals, these new regulations are intended to effectuate Title IX’s prohibition against sex discrimination by requiring recipients to address sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination in education programs or activities. The final regulations obligate recipients to respond promptly and supportively to persons alleged to be victimized by sexual harassment, resolve allegations of sexual harassment promptly and accurately under a predictable, fair grievance process that provides due process protections to alleged victims and alleged perpetrators of sexual harassment, and effectively implement remedies for victims.
Marana Unified School District does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, age, or disability in its program or activities. For more information, please refer to the MUSD Non-Discrimination Policy.
Title IX Process for Reporting:
Any individual, student or staff member is encouraged to report any potential cases of sexual assault, violence or discrimination, which we will follow up on and work with local law enforcement agencies when appropriate. Please contact the Title IX Coordinator.
