Title IX / Non-Discrimination

The Board of Education of the Waukegan Community Unit School District No. 60 has, and will maintain, a policy regarding equal employment, equal educational and extracurricular opportunities and non-discrimination, regardless of person’s race; color; gender; sexual orientation; gender identity or expression; ancestry; age; religion; physical or mental disability; order of protection status; actual or potential marital or parental status, including pregnancy; homeless status or any other legally protected category. This policy includes the prohibition against harassment of any kind, including but not limited to sexual harassment, or retaliation against any individual for reporting or participating in the investigation of a discrimination or harassment complaint. The District, additionally, will not knowingly enter into agreements with any entity or any individual that discriminates against students on the basis of any protected status. 

Complaints received generally will be investigated and resolved in accordance with the District’s Uniform Grievance Procedure Policy 2110, or, when the accused is a student, the District’s student discipline policies. However, complaints of bullying will be addressed under the District’s Prohibition Against Bullying Policy 6046 and complaints related to students experiencing homelessness will be addressed consistent with the procedure established by the State in the Education for Homeless Children Act, 105 ILCS 45/1-25.
