Title IX Statement

When should I contact a Title IX Coordinator?
Any student, faculty/staff member or applicant for admission for education who has concerns about sex discrimination or sexual misconduct is encouraged to seek the assistance of our school’s Title IX Coordinator, Heidy Villarreal.

Contact a coordinator if you:

  • Wish to understand your options if you think you may have encountered sex discrimination or sexual misconduct;
  • Learn of a situation that you feel may warrant a school investigation;
  • Need help on how to handle a situation by which you are indirectly affected;
  • Seek guidance on possible informal remedies or administrative measures to de-escalate or alleviate a difficult situation;
  • Have questions about the policies & procedures at Christine Valmy International School for Esthetics, Skin Care and Makeup.

Coordinators can also facilitate a formal or informal complaint or a police report with the New York City Police Department.

Confidentiality
Conversations with coordinators are kept as confidential as possible, but information about incidents of sexual misconduct must be shared with relevant administrators if Christine Valmy International School needs to take action for reasons of community safety. In all cases, Christine Valmy International School makes every reasonable effort to handle inquiries, complaints, and investigations in a manner that protects the privacy of all parties. While Christine Valmy International School cannot promise complete anonymity in its handling of sexual misconduct complaints, each situation is resolved as discreetly as possible, with information shared only with those who need to know in order to adequately investigate and resolve the matter. Under the New York Open Public Records Act, records of sexual harassment investigations are limited-access records with respect to public records requests.

In certain circumstances, Christine Valmy International School for Esthetics, Skin Care and Makeup may be able to address your concerns and stop the behavior without revealing your identity to the alleged harasser. However, this is not always possible. Individuals accused of harassment are provided with the level of detail about the allegations necessary to allow them a fair opportunity to respond. That level of detail varies depending on the circumstances of the incident. In its investigation, the school will be sensitive to the feelings and situation of the person who reported the misconduct. Nevertheless, Christine Valmy International School has a compelling interest to address allegations of sexual misconduct brought to its attention. As a result, the school reserves the right to take appropriate action, even in cases when the complainant is reluctant to proceed.
