Nondiscrimination / Harassment for Students
Students who feel that they have been subject to unlawful discrimination as described in the Lake County Office of Education policy are strongly encouraged to immediately contact the Title IX Coordinator, principal or any other staff member. In addition, students who observe any such incident are strongly encouraged to report the incident.
LCOE prohibits acts of verbal, nonverbal, or physical aggression, intimidation or hostility based on sex, gender identity, or gender expression or that have the purpose or effect of producing a negative impact on students academic performance or of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive educational environment regardless of whether the acts are sexual in nature.
Any harassment or discrimination based on a person’s sex is a violation of California Education Code 230, as well as federal law. If you feel that your discrimination has reached a level of Title IX, visit the Title IX page for more information.
To ensure that transgender and gender-nonconforming students have the same rights, benefits, and protections provided to all students by law and Board Policy, LCOE shall address each situation on a case-by-case basis.
