Nondiscrimination / Title IX Policy
Salem-Keizer Public Schools recognizes the diversity and worth of all individuals and groups.
It is the policy of Salem-Keizer Public Schools that there will be no discrimination or harassment of individuals or groups based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, marital status, age, veterans’ status, genetic information or disability in any educational programs, activities or employment.
District meeting locations are accessible to persons with disabilities. A request for an interpreter for the hearing impaired, or for other accommodations for persons with disabilities, should be made at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting.
Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states in part 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.” Salem-Keizer School District Administration is committed to providing educational and employment opportunities that are free from discrimination based on sex, and promptly investigating reported violations.
This procedure outlines for steps the District will follow to receive, investigate, and resolve complaints of Title IX sexual harassment involving students and/or staff.
Complaints will be investigated. Complaints and inquires can be made directly to a school administrator or to the Title IX coordinators.
The District will ensure that all individuals who coordinate, investigate, or serve as decision makers for Title IX complaints receive proper training. View the Title IX training page.
