Title IX is a federal law that was passed in 1972 to ensure that male and female students and employees in educational settings are treated equally and fairly. It protects against discrimination based on sex (including sexual harassment). In addition, Title IX protects transgender students and students who do not conform to gender stereotypes. State law also prohibits discrimination based on gender (sex), gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The preamble to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states that: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." 


The District and its Title IX Coordinator are aware of and acknowledge the new Title IX regulations that took effect on August 14, 2020.  The District is in the process of training its Title IX team, as well as all District administrators on the impact of the new regulations.  The District is also in the process of reviewing and revising its Title IX policies and practices to comply with the new regulations, which will involve hearing from and obtaining final approval from the District’s Board of Trustees.  In the interim, the District will be working closely with its legal counsel, Lozano Smith, on Title IX issues that arise to ensure immediate compliance with the new regulations.
