Title IX Statement
Welsh Hills School is committed to a school community that is free from all forms of discrimination and does not tolerate acts of sexual or gender-based misconduct. Any student or employee who believes that they have been subjected to sexual or gender-based misconduct, any parent of such a student, or any student who believes that another student or employee is being subjected to sexual or gender-based misconduct is encouraged to report the misconduct to WHS. Reporters may choose to report to the Head of School or to a Title IX Coordinator. Any employee who believes that a student is being subjected to sexual or gender-based misconduct is required to report such suspected misconduct to the Head of School or to a Title IX Coordinator.
WHS will conduct prompt, thorough, and impartial investigations into any such reports. Interim measures will be available to students who have alleged sexual or gender-based misconduct and students who are accused of sexual or gender-based misconduct. These measures may include, but are not limited to: separation pending the outcome of an investigation, counseling, and educational resources. When an investigation reveals that misconduct created a hostile environment, WHS will take prompt and effective steps to end the misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its impact - including continuing the interim measures as necessary to protect the reporting student and ensure their safety. Students found to engage in acts of sexual misconduct or other acts that create a hostile environment will be dealt with promptly, and discipline may include, but is not limited to, suspension or expulsion. WHS encourages students, parents, and staff to work together to prevent sexual or gender-based misconduct of any kind.
