            Step 10. Retain Records for 7 Years
            1.  For a formal Title IX complaint retain: each sexual harassment investigation, including any determination
               regarding responsibility, any audio or audiovisual required or transcript, any remedies or disciplinary
               sanctions imposed; any appeal and the result therefrom; and any informal resolution and the results
            2.  Whenever an obligation under Title IX is triggered but there was no formal complaint: any actions taken
               to address the report or complaint and to resort or preserve equal acess to the LEA’s program or activity,
               including supportive measures; and why the LEA’s response was not deliberately indifferent.
            3.  Maintain all materials used to train Title IX Coordinators, Investigators, Decision- Makers and any person
               who facilitates an Informal Resolution.  The LEA must make these training materials publicly available on
               its website.
