Title IX Initial Complaint Form

Toledo Public Schools
Title IX Initial Complaint Form

The purpose of this Title IX Complaint form is to gather the essential basic facts of the alleged actions in order to facilitate prompt and equitable resolutions of complaints of sexual harassment prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”). This form applies only to complaints alleging sexual harassment and/or retaliation related to sexual harassment, with sexual harassment defined as conduct on the basis of sex that satisfies one or more of the following: a quid pro quo; unwelcome conduct so severe, pervasive and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the School Board’s education program or activity; sexual assault; dating violence; domestic violence; and/or stalking.

Toledo Public Schools (TPS) does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any education program or activity that it operates as required by Title IX. The district also does not discriminate on the basis of sex in admissions or employment.

Retaliation is an adverse action taken against an individual because they engaged in a protected activity, such as complaining about discrimination, threatening to file a charge of discrimination, or participating or refusing to participate in investigative proceedings. Retaliation is prohibited by law, regulations, and School Board policies.

Persons are strongly encouraged to report allegations of sexual harassment to the District Title IX Coordinator. However, you may also submit your complaint to the school’s Principal or Title IX Liaison, or the work-site supervisor. You may submit your complaint via fax, e-mail or U.S. Mail to the District’s Title IX Coordinator using the contact information below.

For additional information about Title IX or any other discrimination/harassment concerns, contact the U.S. Department of Education Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights and/or:
