Title IX lawsuit filed against Park City School District

PARK CITY, Utah — Former Parley’s Park Elementary School teacher Kathy Moore has filed a Title IX lawsuit against the Park City School District (PCSD), according to KSL.

Moore is alleging that PCSD retaliated against her after she reported that students had been sexually harassed.

In December 2020, a few months into her one-year contract, some of Moore’s students told her they were being sexually harassed by a male peer.

Moore reported the allegation to the school’s principal, the court filing indicates.

The principal went on to instruct Moore to segregate the classroom on the basis of gender. The school went on to receive complaints about the policy, per KSL.

A few weeks later, after following the principal’s guidelines, Moore was transferred to a different elementary school, with the new title “permanent substitute teacher.” In the next few months, she was informed that her one-year contract would not be extended.

Moore’s lawyer told KSL that she has 25 years of teaching experience.

PCSD told KSL the district has not been served on the matter.
