Periodically, the school district amends the Employee Handbook. The complete Terrell ISD Employee Handbook, which includes the following amendment as of Wednesday, September 1, 2021, can be found online by clicking here.
The following information is provided in response to 34 C.F.R. Part 106.8 of the 2020 Title IX Regulations, mandating notice of a nondiscrimination policy and adoption and publication of grievance procedures that provide for the prompt and equitable resolution of student and employee complaints.
In accordance with Title IX, the District does not, and is required not to, discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities. The requirement not to discriminate extends to employment. As a school district serving students in kindergarten–grade 12, the District is not subject to provisions in Title IX Regulations (Subpart C) prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in admissions and recruitment. However, the District does not discriminate on the basis of sex in admissions or transfer requests.
The District has designated and authorized the following employee as the Title IX Coordinator to address concerns or inquiries regarding discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and gender-based harassment:
Name: Dr. Melanie Magee
Position: Deputy Superintendent of Leading and Learning
Address: 700 N Catherine Street, Terrell, TX 75160
Any individual may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, at any time, including during non-business hours, by mail, phone, or email.
During District business hours, reports may also be made in person.

Upon receiving an allegation of sex-based harassment, the Title IX Coordinator will promptly respond in accordance with Board policies FFH and DIA.
