Title IX

At Kansas City Public Schools, it is very important to us that every child, staff member and community member feel welcome, safe and valued as an individual. In order to ensure a safe environment for all students and to comply with the law and our own policies, we have developed training both for staff and students around Title IX, the federal statute that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. 

Relevant staff attending Title IX trainings for Title IX Coordinator, Title IX Investigator, Title IX Decision Maker, and Title IX Appeals.  Training materials may be reviewed at https://tuethkeeney.com/tueth-keeney-title-ix-webinars/.
