If the complainant is dissatisfied with the school-site decision the complainant may file a written complaint directly with the Title IX Coordinator. Policy AC-E-2 is our Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity complaint form and can be found here. This will begin the investigation process which must be completed in a timely manner.  An appeal of the Title IX Coordinator’s findings may be made to the Superintendent of Schools.  An appeal of the Superintendent’s finding may be made to the Lake County School Board.
