Title IX

What is Title IX?

If you are in imminent danger, call 9-1-1.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs, including athletic programs, or activities that receive federal funding.

Title IX protects all students from sex-based discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived sex, gender identity and/or gender expression.

Message from the Title IX Coordinator

Hello Sierra College Community,

As you may or may not be aware, there are new Title IX regulations that were released in May 2020 and are effective as of August 14, 2020. These new regulations substantially change Title IX, including our current processes and policies. The purpose of this message is to let you know that our District Administration is aware of these new regulations, and the Title IX team is working diligently with legal counsel to obtain training and understand/make determinations about processes moving forward.

In addition, we just recently received board policy/administrative procedure updates from the California Community College’s League (CCLC), which are aligned with the new Title IX regulations. We will use these policies and procedures in the interim in order to comply with the August 14 effective date while simultaneously reviewing and revising these procedures and practices, which involves hearing from our stakeholders in order to implement a fair, thorough, and impartial Title IX complaint process and District response. This also includes providing process updates and training to our employees, which reflect these changes as we move forward.

As always, if you want to report a sexual harassment incident, please reach out to myself—LaToya Jackson-Laínez, Title IX Coordinator, at 5100 Sierra College Blvd., Rocklin, CA 95677, (916) 660-7006 or via email at EEOT9@sierracollege.edu. Should you have any other questions, please also feel free to reach out to me.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate these changes, and please remember that I am always here as a resource for our students and employees.

Thank you,

LaToya Jackson-Laínez (she/her/hers/ella)
Title IX Coordinator
