How to File a Complaint Under Title IX

Any student who believes that he/she has been subjected to sexual harassment or who has witnessed sexual harassment is strongly encouraged to report the incident to his/her teacher, the principal, or any other available school employee. Within one school day of receiving such a report, the school employee shall forward the report to the principal or the District's Title IX Coordinator.

In addition, any school employee who observes an incident of sexual harassment involving a student shall, within one school day, report his/her observation to the principal or the District’s Title IX Coordinator. The employee shall take these actions, whether or not the alleged victim files a complaint.

When a report of sexual harassment is submitted, the principal or Title IX Coordinator shall inform the student or parent/guardian of the right to file a formal written complaint in accordance with the district's uniform complaint procedures (see below).

If a complaint of sexual harassment is initially submitted to the principal, he/she shall, within two school days, forward the report to the Title IX Coordinator to initiate investigation of the complaint. The compliance officer shall contact the complainant and investigate and resolve the complaint in accordance with law and district procedures.

Uniform Complaint Procedures

  1. Filing a Complaint: Submit a written complaint by following the Uniform Complaint filing procedures listed in SRVUSD’s Uniform Complaint Administrative Regulation 1312.3
  2. Filing Timeline: The complaint shall be initiated no later than 6 months from the date when the alleged discrimination occurred, or 6 months from the date when the complainant first obtained knowledge of the facts of the alleged discrimination.
  3. Mediation: Within three business days after the compliance officer receives the complaint, he/she may informally discuss with all the parties the possibility of using mediation. Mediation shall be offered to resolve complaints that involve more than one student and no adult. However, mediation shall not be offered or used to resolve any complaint involving an allegation of sexual assault or where there is a reasonable risk that a party to the mediation would feel compelled to participate.
  4. Investigation: Within 20 business days after the compliance officer receives the complaint, the compliance officer shall begin an investigation into the complaint.
  5. Report of Findings: Within 60 days of the report being filed, the compliance officer shall prepare and send to the complainant a written report of the district's investigation and decision.
