Adopted: April 9, 1985
Fremont County School District No. 25 will not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, age, or national origin in its educational programs, activities or employment policies as required by Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments.

Within ten (10) regular working days of receipt of a written complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will confer with the complainant, investigate the incident, and provide the complainant with a written statement of the Level I decision, complete with supporting reasons. In each case, the building Principal or immediate supervisor shall participate with the Title IX Coordinator in making the decision and writing the Level I report. This decision will indicate whether wrongful discrimination did in fact take place.
A complainant who does not accept the decision of the Title IX Coordinator and building administrator, may within ten (10) days of receipt of the Level I decision, make a written request for a hearing with the Superintendent of Schools. The hearing request shall include a copy of the original complaint, supporting statements and evidence, and decisions with supporting statements reached at Level I. Within ten (10) days of receipt of the hearing request, the Superintendent shall meet with the complainant to discuss the original complaint and previous decisions reached, and within ten (10) days of the hearing, provide the complainant with a written decision complete with supporting reasons.
