Discussion

The purpose of this revision is to ensure compliance with all applicable federal and state laws, Florida State Board of Education Rules, Board policies,
administrative rules, procedures, and guidelines. In addition, the proposed revisions promote transparency and accountability.

• Minor changes are presented to coordinate with the addition of New Policy 2266 - Nondiscrimination on The Basis of Sex in Education Programs and
Activities, in light of changes to federal law under Title IX.
• The policy has been revised to appropriately cross-reference Policy 2266 and require that reports of dating violence first be evaluated by the Title IX
Coordinator for applicability of the Title IX grievance process.
• After screening, any reports deemed not to fall under the scope of Title IX would be addressed through this policy. Any reports falling under the scope
of Title IX must instead be addressed through the grievance process set out in Policy 2266.
• The proposed amendments did not arise from an updated NEOLA template; instead, they were initiated by BPS legal counsel in consultation with
NEOLA’s legal counsel.
