Title IX Information

Nondiscrimination Notice:
The Board prohibits, at any district school or school activity, unlawful discrimination, including discriminatory harassment, intimidation, and bullying, targeted at any student by anyone, based on the student's actual or perceived race, color, ancestry, nationality, national origin, immigration status, ethnic group identification, ethnicity, age, religion, marital status, pregnancy, parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or genetic information, or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.



    A complaint alleging unlawful discrimination or retaliation must be filed no later than six months from the date the discrimination or retaliation occurred, or six months from when the complainant first learned of the unlawful discrimination. The Superintendent or designee may extend this timeline by up to ninety days for good cause, upon written request by the complainant setting forth the reasons for the extension. A student, parent, guardian, employee, individual, or organization may file a written complaint alleging discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying on the basis of a protected characteristic under WESD's Uniform Complaint Procedure by sending a complaint to WESD's Title IX Coordinator. You may file a complaint anonymously, but WESD's ability to investigate and respond may be limited by a lack of information.

    You may also file a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights. For more information, visit  Complaint Intro. The electronic complaint form for the Office for Civil Rights is available online at Office for Civil Rights Complaint Assessment System.
