Title IX Compliance

Bullhead City School District adheres to all conditions established by Title IX by recognizing the right of every student who attends school in the district and every employee who works in the district to do so without the fear of sexual harassment. Our district employs the following definition of sexual harassment. Any conduct based on sex that satisfies one (1) or more of the following:

  • An employee of the district conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit, or service of the school/district on an individual's participation in unwelcome sexual conduct.
  • Unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the school or district's education program or activity.
  • Sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking as defined by U.S. Code.

A recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or because a person made charges, testifies, or participates in any complaint action under Title IX.
