Sexual Misconduct Title IX Policy

CPS has a commitment to fostering and maintaining an educational environment and workplace that is free from all forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and sexual harassment. The CPS strictly enforces a prohibition against sexual misconduct of any of its employees, students, students’ parents/guardians/caregivers or members of the public by anyone, including any fellow student, teacher, supervisor, co-worker, vendor, or other third party, as such conduct is contrary to the mission of the CPS and its commitment to equal opportunity in education and employment.

The CPS will not tolerate sexual misconduct that affects employment or educational conditions, that interferes unreasonably with an individual’s school or work performance, or that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work or school environment. Sexual misconduct of employees, students, students’ parents/guardians/caregivers or members of the public occurring in the schools or workplace is prohibited by law and will not be tolerated by the CPS. For purposes of this policy, “workplace” or “school” includes school-sponsored social events, trips, sports events, work-related travel or similar events connected with school or employment, including without limitation, extracurricular and athletic activities and programs, traveling to and from school or on a school-sponsored field trip. Further, any retaliation against an individual who has complained about sexual misconduct or retaliation; or any retaliation against any individual who has cooperated with an investigation of a sexual misconduct or retaliation complaint is similarly unlawful and will not be tolerated. This policy also sets forth procedures for students to report a sexual assault.
