Responsible Employee Information

Under C-14, all LACCD employees are considered “Responsible Employees.” The term refers to a person who works for LACCD who has the responsibility to report to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator instances of Sexual Misconduct or Sexual Harassment at or connected to the College or the District, which he or she has been told about or has witnessed.

Official with Authority

Under new Title IX regulations and C-15, an Official with Authority (OWA) means a LACCD employee explicitly vested with the responsibility to implement corrective measures on behalf of the institution for sex or gender-based discrimination, harassment, violence, and/or retaliatory conduct involving students, faculty, staff, or third parties.

Notice means that an employee, student, or third-party informs the Title IX Coordinator or other Official with Authority of the alleged occurrence of sex or gender-based discrimination, harassment, violence, and/or retaliatory conduct involving students, faculty, staff, or third parties.

Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act) is a federal law and accompanying regulations that require colleges to disclose certain timely information about campus crime, and security and safety policies annually. Compliance with the Clery Act is a condition for colleges that participate in the federal student aid program. As a part of its Clery program, LACCD Colleges collect and publish statistical information on crimes occurring on and around campus, as well as relevant crime and safety information annually.


Under District policy and procedures addressing Title IX Complaints and Respondents, are entitled to an Advisor or Advocate to support them throughout the complaint process. An Advisor/Advocate can be any person of their choosing including District employees. If you have a standing relationship with a student, they may ask you to serve in this role.

Advisors/Advocates can attend any meeting or proceeding throughout the entire process as long as they are not a relevant witness. That means as an Advisor/Advocate you cannot speak for the Complainant or Respondent during any meeting to directly provide evidence.

LACCD has trained employees who have volunteered to serve as Advocates for students or other employees going through the complaint process. If you are interested in serving as an Advisor/Advocate or have been asked to serve in this capacity and want more information about the process, please contact your Regional Coordinator for more information.
