Title IX

The Jeff Tech joint operating procedure declares it to be the policy of this school to provide an equal opportunity for all students to achieve their maximum potential through the programs and activities offered in the school without discrimination on the basis of race, color, age, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ancestry, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, or handicap/disability.  

The Jeff Tech Joint Operating Committee also declares it to be the policy of this school to comply with federal law and regulations under Title IX prohibiting sexual harassment, which is a form of unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex. Such discrimination shall be referred to throughout Jeff Tech’s policy as Title IX sexual harassment. Inquiries regarding the application of Title IX to the school may be referred to the school’s Title IX coordinator, or to the assistant secretary for civil rights of the United States Department of Education, or both.

Title IX Information

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination in educational programs or activities that receive federal assistance on the basis of sex. Violations of Title IX include all forms of sexual or gender-based harassment. Title IX protects individuals of all genders and sexual orientations and applies to students, faculty, staff, independent contractors, school visitors, and other participants in educational programs and activities. 

Jeff Tech has designated a Title IX Coordinator to comply with Title IX and other federal and state civil rights laws, and ensure that reports of sexual or gender-based harassment or misconduct are appropriately investigated by the school. Anyone having questions or concerns about their rights under Title IX or who believes that they have been the victim of sexual or gender-based harassment or misconduct, is encouraged to contact the schools' Title IX Coordinator.
