The Office of Compliance and Investigations performs investigations requested by district administrators to ensure the safety of all JCPS students and staff. If necessary, we work with Child Protective Services (CPS) and the Crimes Against Children Unit (CACU). To make sure students, employees, and JCPS volunteers have not been discriminated against, our department works with such agencies as the Office for Civil Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights.
Compliance and Investigations also is responsible for monitoring Section 504 student plans and making sure they are being properly implemented according to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The JCPS liaison, district Title IX coordinator, and district Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) coordinator work out of our office, and we provide training on harassment, discrimination, sexual harassment, Section 504, and ethics.
