Code of Conduct

Bold City Education schools and programs follow the Duval County Public School District's Code of Conduct.

https://dcps.duvalschools.org/conduct

Title IX

Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law, enacted in 1972, which states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

On May 6, 2020, the United States Department of Education released its final rule under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The final rule requires schools and school districts to follow a specific Title IX Grievance Process while investigating allegations of sexual misconduct. The Office of Civil Rights of the United States Department of Education considers sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault and intimate partner violence) to be a form of sexual discrimination and requires schools and school districts to take immediate and effective steps to respond to sexual misconduct.

Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX and the Grievance Procedure may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator:
