Title IX – Sexual Harassment Policy and Grievance Procedures

The Lancaster County Career & Technology Center holds a fundamental belief that education is for everyone and should be free of gender discrimination, physical intimidation, emotional exploitation, and sexual harassment or misconduct.

Students are encouraged to immediately report any criminal action, incident of sexual abuse and/or emergency occurring on campus to an instructor, administrator, or any other employee of the school.  Students may also report any misconduct anonymously here using the online form below.

If the reported incident cannot be resolved by school administration, additional assistance will be obtained by contacting local police and/or other emergency responders as necessary. Reports of incidences are kept confidential.

Even if a student or his or her parent/guardian does not want to file a complaint or does not request that the school take any action on the student’s behalf, if a school knows or reasonably should know about possible sexual harassment or sexual violence, it must promptly investigate to determine what occurred and then take appropriate steps to resolve the situation.

The Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 states that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
