Title IX Information
Chadwick School is committed to providing a safe and equitable learning environment for all students.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal sex/gender equity law that governs how educational institutions receiving federal funds must respond to allegations of sex and gender-based discrimination, harassment and violence and/or retaliation.
Under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
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.
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued new Title IX compliance regulations on May 8, 2020, which specifically dictate how schools must respond to incidents of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence and stalking. All complaints shall be appropriately investigated in a timely manner. Within 10 business days after the Title IX coordinator receives the complaint, the Title IX coordinator, or designee, shall begin an investigation into the complaint.
Filing a Title IX Complaint
Students or parents/guardians should report their verbal or written Title IX complaint to the school Title IX Coordinator within six months from the date the alleged incident occurred or first obtained knowledge. Complaints can be reported here.
