RE: Title IX Coordinator
Dear [Principal’s Name]:
My name is [Your Name] and I am a student at [Your School]. Federal regulations and U.S. Department of Education guidance require that all educational institutions that receive federal funding identify a Title IX Coordinator and notify all students and employees of the name, address, and telephone number of the Title IX Coordinator.*
I searched on the Your School District website and was unable to find this information. Please provide me with the name and contact information for my school’s Title IX Coordinator within seven days of this letter. You can send the information to me at the email address listed below.
I would also recommend that you make this information more visible. It is critical that students know who to contact in the event that they experience sexual or gender-based violence during their time at Your School.
