Wisconsin’s Rhinelander School District violated a nonbinary student’s Title IX rights when it didn’t properly address sex and gender-based harassment from other students and when multiple teachers used incorrect pronouns for the student, the U.S. Department of Education’s (USDE) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) found in a July 6th case resolution. Instead of addressing the harassment from peers, the school district changed the student’s schedule to attend school in person for three classes and take additional classes through self-directed virtual study.

The school district entered a voluntary resolution agreement with OCR by which it is required to determine whether compensatory services are necessary to address the harassed student’s missed instructional time and to provide district-wide training on Title IX compliance, implement information programs for students to address sex-based harassment, and conduct a climate survey.
