Know Your Rights: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence Information
On April 4, 2011, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the U.S. Department of Education issued guidance concerning schools' obligations to protect students from sexual harassment and sexual violence. The Dear Colleague letter explains the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 as they relate to student-on-student sexual harassment and violence. The letter also discusses the proactive efforts schools can take to prevent sexual violence and educate employees and students, and it provides examples of the types of remedies that schools and OCR may use to respond to such conduct. You will see three PDF's that outline mandates based on Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and its implementing regulations. You will also find "Know Your Rights: Title IX Prohibits Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence Where You Go to School and a Fast Facts sheet. If you have any questions, concerns or the need to discuss this information, please call Gateway's Affirmative Action Officer, Mrs. Dana DeGeorge at 856-848-3420 x 220. Thank you.
