Title IX

  • What is Title IX?

    Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination in education, including K-12 schools. Title IX is a federal law that promotes equity in education.  It is the policy of the State of California that all persons, regardless of their gender, should enjoy freedom from discrimination of any kind in the educational institution of the state. The laws found in the California Education Code 221.5-231.5 External link opens in new window or tab. are collectively known as the Sex Equity in Education Act.

    If you are unsure whether your concern/complaint is a Complaint of Sexual Harassment, please file a General Complaint, and the District will determine whether it should be processed as a General Complaint, Complaint Against Employee, Sexual Harassment Complaint, Uniform Complaint, or Williams Complaint. Please refer to Concerns/Complaints

    TITLE IX violations shall be reported via the Uniform Complaint Procedure (UCP), as identified in California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Sections 4600 et. seq. For more information on the UCP complaints and appeals visit the CDE’s UNIFORM COMPLAINT PROCEDURES and RESOLUTION OF DISCRIMINATION/HARASSMENT COMPLAINT pages.
