If you are not filling this form out as a parent or guardian and you intend to report sexual harassment against another person in the District's education program or activities, please report your concerns to the District's Title IX Coordinator so that the District can take further action. Under federal law, only an alleged victim of sexual harassment who is currently participating or attempting to participate in the District's education program or activity (such as an enrolled student, an employee, or an applicant for employment or admission) has the right to use the formal complaint process to initiate an investigation. The District will process all formal complaints in accordance with FFH(LEGAL) and (LOCAL) and, as applicable, DIA(LEGAL) and (LOCAL).

Notice to Complainant: This document is a legal record of the allegations of sexual harassment that you have reported to the District in order to request a formal investigation. Please keep a copy of the completed form and any supporting documentation for your records. Please also review your rights and responsibilities at FFH(LEGAL). Any questions or concerns that you may have during this process may be directed to the District's Title IX Coordinator.

If, after reviewing your complaint form, the Title IX Coordinator finds that the allegations are not appropriate for a Title IX sexual harassment formal complaint process but should be investigated by the District under a different policy or procedure, your formal complaint form will be forwarded to the appropriate District personnel in accordance with District policies. [See DIA, FFI, and FFH] You have the right to appeal the dismissal of your formal complaint, as explained in policy FFH(LEGAL) and the District's Title IX formal complaint process.
