  • Read LCOE's Title IX Sexual Harassment Administrative Regulation.

    The following complaint procedures shall be used to address any complaint governed by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 alleging that a student, while participating in an education program or activity in which the Lake County Office of Education (LCOE) exercises substantial control over the context and respondent, was subjected to one or more of the following forms of sexual harassment: (34 CFR 106.30, 106.44)

    1. An LCOE employee conditioning the provision of an LCOE aid, benefit, or service on the student's participation in unwelcome sexual conduct
    2. Unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a student equal access to LCOE's education program or activity
    3. Sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking as defined in 20 USC 1092 or 34 USC 1229

    All other sexual harassment complaints or allegations brought by or on behalf of students shall be investigated and resolved in accordance with Uniform Complaint Procedures and related Lake County Superintendent-approved rules or regulations.
