Title IX Policies
Chaparral Star Academy prohibits discrimination, including harassment, against any student/staff member on the basis of race, color, religion, gender or sex, national origin, disability, age, age, family status, sexual orientation or any other basis prohibited by law. Chaparral Star Academy also prohibits dating violence, as defined in this document under sexual harassment. Retaliation against anyone involved in the complaint process is a violation of school policy.
For all harassment concerns dealing with students and/or staff members, CSA will follow the CSA Freedom from Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Policies (found below) and the Chaparral Star Academy Title IX Grievance Process, Policies & Procedures, if applicable (found below).
The following information is provided in response to 34 C.F.R. Part 106.8 of the 2020 Title IX Regulations, mandating notice of a nondiscrimination policy and adoption and publication of grievance procedures that provide for the prompt and equitable resolution of student and employee complaints. In accordance with Title IX, the district does not, and is required not to discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities. The requirement not to discriminate extends to employment. As a school district serving students in kindergarten through grade 12, the district is not subject to provisions in Title IX Regulations (Subpart C) prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in admissions and recruitment. However, the district does not discriminate on the basis of sex in admissions or transfer requests.
The district has designated and authorized the following employee as the Title IX Coordinator to address concerns or inquiries regarding discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and gender-based harassment:
