non-discrimination policIES and federal financial assistance

It is the policy of The Fenn School to maintain a school environment that is free from unlawful discrimination and to conduct its educational practices, admissions program, financial aid policies, and athletic and other school administrative programs solely on the basis of an individual’s merit, qualifications, and skills. The School admits qualified students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, mental or physical disability, or any other status protected by applicable law, and extends to them all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. The Fenn School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, mental or physical disability, or any other status protected by applicable law in the administration of its admissions, financial aid, and loans, and its educational, athletic, and other programs.

Additionally, The Fenn School does not discriminate in hiring or terms or conditions of employment on the basis of sex, pregnancy or pregnancy-related condition, age, marital status, military or veteran status, application for military service, race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, citizenship, genetic information, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, mental or physical disability, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law.

 

NOTICE FOR FENN SCHOOL COMMUNITY REGARDING TITLE IX POLICY

As COVID-19 began to impact many individuals and organizations across the country in the spring of 2019, The Fenn School took steps to ensure that it was doing all that it could to support students and employees during the uncertain times and to ensure that it could continue providing the best education to all students as it looked towards the 2020-2021 school year. To assist in this effort, the School applied for and received a federal loan that requires the School to comply with certain non-discrimination obligations under federal law for the duration of the loan.

Because the School has always made it a priority to ensure that all students, employees, and community members are treated in a fair and nondiscriminatory manner, the changes required by these new obligations under federal law are largely procedural and not substantive. Nonetheless, out of an abundance of caution, the School has implemented new additional policies to avoid any questions about the School’s continued compliance with applicable law.

Specifically, the School has implemented the following policies and procedures (effective immediately):

Title IX Policy

Title IX Grievance Procedures

Title IX Complaint Form

These policies and procedures are accessible via the above website links and augment, but do not replace, existing School policies and procedures. Further, we expect that these new policies and procedures will be in place only for the term of the federal loan. During that period, however, any conflict between the above-listed policies and the School’s existing policies should be resolved in favor of the above-listed policies.

Anyone with questions or inquiries regarding Title IX or any other non-discrimination policies, or how these policies apply to the School, should contact Fenn’s designated Compliance Coordinators:
