Reporting Discrimination, Harassment, Retaliation or Bullying
Reporting Other Types of Complaints
Title IX prohibits sex-based discrimination in all educational programs and activities. There may be times when a member of the Baker Valley Unified School District (""BVUSD"") Community experiences different forms of discrimination. In cases like these, people may choose to file a Uniform Complaint using the Uniform Complaint Form and sending the complaint to:
Title IX Coordinator
72100 School House Lane,
Baker, CA 92309
Except as may otherwise be specifically provided in Board Policies, the Uniform Complaint Procedures shall be used only to investigate and resolve complaints alleging (1) violations of federal or state laws or regulations governing specific educational programs, (2) the prohibition against requiring students to pay fees, deposits, or other charges for participating in educational activities, and (3) unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying in educational programs. Employment discrimination, harassment, or retaliation claims shall not be processed through the Uniform Complaint Procedure. (5 CCR 4661.) For employment claims see Discrimination or harassment of employees or job applicants, Board Policy 4030, and Administrative Regulations 4031.
The California Code of Regulations (Title 5, Section 4600 et seq.) requires the districts, among other things, to adopt and publish procedures referred to as the Uniform Complaint Procedures (UCP) that provide for prompt and equitable resolution of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying complaints. The District must notify students, employees, and parents, as well as others, of its local complaint procedures and identify the person or persons responsible for processing complaints.
If you are a student, parent or interested third party or organization and you want to report an instance of discrimination, harassment, intimidation and bullying, a complaint must be filed with the District no later than six months from the date the incident occurred, or the date you first obtained knowledge that the incident occurred.
