Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures

The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has announced it will conduct a comprehensive review of its regulations implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, starting with a public hearing on the issues of sexual harassment in school environments, including sexual violence, and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. From June 7, 2021 — June 11, 2021, the OCR will host a virtual public hearing. Visit this link to view an in-depth description of the event. The OCR seeks participation from the public to address:

  1. Steps the Department can take to ensure that schools are providing students with educational environments free from discrimination in the form of sexual harassment.
  2. How the Department can continue to ensure that schools have grievance procedures that provide for the fair, prompt, and equitable resolution of reports of sexual harassment and other sex discrimination.
  3. The Department’s role in addressing discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in educational environments.
