Ball-Chatham CUSD #5’s Title IX and Nondiscrimination Coordinators for students and staff manage the District’s Title IX compliance program and oversee all related policies, training, and complaints.
Title IX is a federal civil rights law guiding all institutions receiving federal financial assistance from the Department of Education. It says that all such institutions must operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. Title IX states in particular that “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.”
Our District remains in compliance with Title IX in all of our programs and activities and will respond to all complaints alleging any form of sex discrimination.
Below, students, staff, and community members can access contact information for the District’s Title IX and Nondiscrimination Coordinators. The public can also review and access related trainings, procedures, and complaint protocols.
How to report a case of Title IX discrimination: A report may be made orally or in writing to the District Title IX Coordinator or any staff member. Anonymous reports are also accepted. Those making a report are encouraged to use our Quick Tip Form.
Ball-Chatham CUSD #5’s Title IX Coordinators are charged with overseeing the district's responsibilities related to Title IX mandates created to prevent sex discrimination and/or retaliation within public education programs and activities. They do that by ensuring our district complies with relevant laws and policies. Our Coordinators also have oversight into how the district handles complaints, coordinates training, completes investigations, enacts prevention measures, makes decisions, and monitors outcomes regarding discrimination and misconduct for all rights and privileges protected by Title IX. They must also promote a bias-free culture and surveil athletic and academic activities to prevent sex discrimination from creating intentional or unintentional inequities.
Additional information on Title IX and other related school policies is available on our website or through the Board of Education’s BoardDocs portal.
