Title IX Coordinator
Next Generation Academy and the Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity, and it is required by Title IX not to discriminate in such a manner. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to NGA’s Title IX coordinator, Dawn Moreland.
Sexual harassment, which includes sexual assault and other sexual misconduct, is a form of sex discrimination. Under Next Generation Academy's Policy, NGA prohibits sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, stalking and retaliation.
Sexual Harassment is also defined:
an employee conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit, or service on the student’s participation in unwelcome sexual conduct (i.e., quid pro quo); (2) unwelcome conduct on the basis of sex that a reasonable person would find so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it denies a person equal educational access to a school’s program or activities; or (3) sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking. This definition differs from the Title VII workplace standard (severe or pervasive conduct creating a hostile work environment) and would exclude expressions protected by free speech and academic freedom.
NGA complies with Title IX and has appointed Mrs. Dawn Moreland as the Title IX Coordinator with overall responsibility for Title IX compliance. For allegations or reports that a student, an employee and/or volunteer has engaged in sexual harassment, please contact Mrs. Dawn Moreland. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.271.9030.
