Title IX

Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972 requires equity between men and women in three areas:

  1. equal opportunity to participate in sports in relation to the percentage of men and women in the student body,

  2. equal access to scholarship money,

  3. facilities and support services.

Title IX also protects everyone, both students and staff, from sexual misconduct and discrimination regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, ensuring everyone has a right to be free from unequal treatment in educational programs or employment, sexual harassment, such as unwelcome sexual advances, stalking or harassment on social media, and sexual violence, such as sexual assault, dating violence, or domestic violence.

The District is committed to providing equal opportunities to all persons regarding its educational programs, policies, and employment practices.  Inquiries or complaints should be directed to the District’s Title IX Coordinator or through the Title IX Report Form.  Contact information for the Title IX Coordinator may be located at the bottom of the District’s website homepage.

Refer to District Policy 403.80:  Title IX-Nondiscrimination Policy and Administrative Regulation 0403.80-AR(1):  Title IX-Nondiscrimination Policy.
