了解你的目标

第九条 is not just about sports; it is a prohibition against sex-based discrimination in education. 它解决了在STEM(科学)领域对怀孕和育儿学生以及女性的歧视, 技术, 工程, 和数学)程序. It also addresses sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence. Sexual violence includes attempted or completed rape or sexual assault, 还有性骚扰, 跟踪, 窥阴癖, 自我表现欲, verbal or physical sexuality-based threats or abuse, and intimate partner violence.

第九条 protects any person from sex-based discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived sex, 性别认同, 和/或性别表达. 所有女性, 男性, and gender non-conforming individuals are protected from any sex-based discrimination, 骚扰或暴力.

即使你没有直接遭受性别歧视,你也受到第九条的保护. Schools must take immediate steps to address any sex discrimination, 校园性骚扰或性暴力,防止其进一步影响学生. If a school knows or reasonably should know about discrimination, 骚扰或暴力 that is creating a “hostile environment” for any 学生, 它必须采取行动消除它, to remedy the harm caused and to prevent its recurrence. Schools may not discour年龄 survivors from continuing their education, such as telling them to “take time off” or forcing them to quit a team, 俱乐部或班级. 你有权利留在学校,享受所有的教育项目和机会.

Every school must have a 第九条协调员 who man年龄s complaints. 协调员的联系信息应该在学校的网站上公开. If you decide to file a complaint, 无论你是否向警方报案,你的学校都必须立即进行调查(尽管如果执法部门正在收集证据,警方的调查可能会非常短暂地推迟学校的调查)。. 学校不可以等待刑事诉讼的结论,而应该在一个学期的时间内完成自己的调查(2011年民权办公室第九章指导建议60天作为适当的时间框架)。. 学校应该使用“证据优势”标准来确定投诉的结果, meaning discipline should result if it is more likely than not that discrimination, harassment and/or violence occurred. The final decision should be provided to you and the accused in writing. Both of you have the right to appeal the decision.

Along with issuing a no contact directive to the accused, a school must ensure that any reasonable changes to your housing, 课程或运动时间表, 校园工作, 或者课外活动和俱乐部是为了确保你能在没有性别歧视的情况下继续你的教育, sexual harassment or sexual violence. These arrangements can occur BEFORE a formal complaint, 调查, 听力, or final decision is made regarding your complaint. 它也可以在整个过程之后继续,因为你有权接受没有性别歧视的教育, 骚扰或暴力. 另外, these accommodations should not over-burden complainant-victims or limit your educational opportunities; instead, 学校可以要求被告同样改变一些学校活动或课程,以确保没有持续的敌对教育环境.

学校必须处理有关性别歧视、性骚扰和性暴力的投诉. 作为这项义务的一部分,他们可以发布禁止联系指令或作出其他安排,以确保被告或第三方不会对任何投诉进行报复. 另外, the school may not take adverse action against the complainant-victim for their complaint. Any retaliation can and should be reported in a formal 第九条 complaint to the U.S. 因为你有权从充满敌意的教育环境中解脱出来.

When necessary for 学生 safety, 学校可以发布禁止接触指令,防止被指控的学生直接或间接与你接触或互动. Campus security or police can and should enforce such directives. This is not a court-issued restraining order, 但是,如果你选择申请,学校应该向你提供有关如何获得这样一份申请令的信息,并为你提供便利.

2011年的第九条指导明确禁止学校允许在性暴力案件中被指控的学生和投诉受害者之间进行调解. 然而, they may still offer such an alternative process for other types of complaints, 比如性骚扰. 意识到这是你的选择,如果你想要这样一个正式的程序,你可以也应该寻求纪律听证会. Schools are discour年龄d from allowing the accused to question you during a 听力.

如果你需要咨询, 辅导, or other remedies in order to continue your education, these resources will be provided at no cost to you.
