Formal Complaint

The grievance procedure requires the following steps be taken:

  • Both the complainant (alleged victim) and the respondent (alleged abuser) will receive written notice of the complaint with sufficient details to allow respondent to prepare a response.

  • Respondent is presumed innocent.

  • An investigation will be initiated after the written notice has been sent to both the complainant and the respondent. A written investigative report will be prepared and made available for both parties to review. Both parties will have 10 days to respond to the evidence in writing.

  • Evidence from the investigation will be objectively evaluated to reach conclusions about whether or not the respondent is responsible for the alleged sexual harassment. The standard of evidence used is the preponderance of evidence standards. A written determination will be prepared and provided to both parties, along with information on how to appeal.


Neither the District nor any person may intimidate, threaten, coerce, or discriminate against any individual for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by Title IX, or because the individual has in good faith made a report or complaint, testified, assisted, or participated or refused to participate in any manner in an investigation.
