Board Policy 0104 - Title IX

Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 is the landmark legislation that prohibits sex discrimination in schools, whether in academics or athletics.

Title IX requires educational institutions to maintain policies, practices, and programs that do not discriminate against anyone based on sex. Under this law, males and females are expected to receive fair and equal treatment in all arenas of public schooling: recruitment, admissions, educational programs and activities, course offerings and access, counseling, financial aid, employment assistance, facilities and housing, health and insurance benefits, marital and parental status, scholarships, sexual harassment, and athletics.

The Board of Education directs the Superintendent to take immediate action to correct any violation of Title IX in the operation of the school system’s programs.

The Board of Education directs the Superintendent to designate a Title IX Coordinator to oversee implementation and compliance with the September 2006 Agreement with the National Women’s Law Center and compliance with the regulations of the Title IX Educational Amendments of 1972.
