• RCS does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education program and activities, as required by Title IX. Such requirement to not discriminate extends to admission and employment.  As required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, RCS prohibits all unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation on the basis of sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation in any employment decision, admissions determination, education program or educational activity.  Pursuant to federal regulations implementing Title IX, any complaint involving “sexual harassment” as defined by those federal regulations that occurs in a Rome City Schools education program shall be addressed pursuant to the Rome City Schools Title IX Procedures, available below.  Inquiries about the application of Title IX may be directed to the Title IX Coordinator.

     

    Any person who believes that he or she has experienced discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and/or retaliation, or believes that another individual has experienced prohibited conduct should immediately report such conduct so that the district may address the conduct.  While anonymous reports may be made, disciplinary action may not be based solely on an anonymous report.  Formal complaints of sexual harassment may be filed with the Title IX Coordinator in person, via mail or email, at the contact information listed below:
