​TO: Dallas College, Board of Trustees

FROM: Dr. Joe May, Chancellor, Chief Executive Officer

DATE: November 6, 2020

RE: Chief Executive Officer Reporting Requirements under Tex. Educ. Code § 51.253(c)

Under the Texas Education Code, Section 51.253(a), each location’s Campus Title IX Coordinator is required to submit a written report no less than every three months to the institution’s Chief Executive Officer regarding reports received from employees who are required to report under Texas Education Code, Section 51.252, and the type of incident described in the employee’s report: “sexual harassment,” “sexual assault,” “dating violence,” or “stalking,” as defined in the Texas Education Code, Section 51.251.​

For the purposes of complying with the Chief Executive Officer's reporting requirements under TEC, Section 51.253(c), the summary data report1 below (Appendix A) includes all of the required reporting information to the Dallas College, Board of Trustees for the 2019-2020 academic year, as of Spring 2020 (April – May). The summary data in Appendix A is categorized based on the reporting requirements under TEC, Section 51.253(c). The reports received may be applicable in multiple reporting categories, therefore, the summary data in certain categories may not add up to the totals of other categories.

The summary data report is also posted on the Dallas College Title IX website​​​, as per the public reporting requirements under TEC, Section 51.253(c). 

Note: Any additional reports received by the campus Title IX Coordinator that do not meet the statutory reporting requirements under Chapter 51 of the Texas Education Code have been omitted from this report2.​

Footnotes

1When identifiable, duplicate reports were consolidated and counted as one report in the summary data, and confidential employee reporting is noted as a sub-set to the total number of reports received.

2For example, reports made by students and all other non-employees (including incidents under 3.5(d)(3)) are excluded from Appendices A and B.  Additionally, if a Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator determines that the type of incident described in a report, as alleged, does not constitute “sexual harassment," “sexual assault," “dating violence," or “stalking" as defined in the TEC, Section 51.2​51, the report is excluded from Appendices A and B. It is the responsibility of the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator to assess each report received and determine whether it is properly included in this report, and if so, to correctly identify the type of incident.

3Reports made by students and all other non-employees (including incidents under 3.5(d)(3)) are excluded from Appendices A and B.  Additionally, if a Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator determines that the type of incident described in a report, as alleged, does not constitute “sexual harassment," “sexual assault," “dating violence," or “stalking" as defined in the TEC, Section 51.251, the report is excluded from Appendices A and B. It is the responsibility of the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator to assess each report received and determine whether it is properly included in this report, and if so, to correctly identify the type of incident.

4“Number of confidential reports" is a sub-set of the total number of reports that were received under Section 51.252, by a confidential employee or office (e.g., Counseling Center, Student Health Center, Victim Advocate for Students, or Student Ombuds).

5“Disposition" means “final result under the institution's disciplinary process" as defined in the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's (THECB) rules for TEC, Section 51.259 [See 19 Texas Administrative Code, Section 3.6(3) (2019)]; therefore, pending disciplinary processes will not be listed until the final result is rendered. 

6“No Finding of a Policy Violation" in this section refers to instances where there is no finding of responsibility after a hearing or an appeal process; investigations completed with a preponderance of evidence not met are excluded, because it would not have moved forward into a disciplinary process.

7The institution may have determined “not to initiate a disciplinary process." The reasons for not initiating a discipline process can include, but are not limited to: case dismissal; insufficient information to investigate; confidential employee reporting (no identifiable information); the respondent's identity was unknown or not reported; the respondent was not university-affiliated; the complainant requested the institution not investigate the report; informal resolution was completed; investigation is ongoing; or investigation was completed with a preponderance of evidence not met. ​​
