This is a notice to all students, parents, employees, unions, and professional organizations holding collective bargaining or professional agreements with the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, that discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities in federally funded school districts and colleges at all levels is prohibited.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) Prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities in federally funded schools at all levels. If any part of a school district or college receives any Federal funds for any purpose, all of the operations of the district or college are covered by Title IX.
Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. All students (as well as other person) at recipient institutions are protected by Title IX–regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, part- or full-time status, disability, race, or national origin–in all aspects of a recipient’s educational programs and activities.
As part of their obligations under Title IX, all recipients of Federal financial assistance must designate at least one employee to coordinate their efforts to comply with and carry out their responsibilities under Title IX and must notify all students and employees as the Title IX coordinator.
The essence of Title IX is that an institution may not exclude, separate, deny benefits to, or otherwise treat differently an person on the basis of sex, unless expressly authorized, is considering relying on one of the exceptions to this general rule (several of which are discussed below), Title IX coordinators should be involved at every stage and work with school officials and legal counsel to help determine whether the exception is applicable and, if so, properly executed.
Title IX notice posters are located in the front office and common areas all EBRPSS school sites.
A Title IX report of sexual harassment may be initiated by completing the Title IX grievance form found below or by submitting a grievance letter or email.
Please contact Andrew Davis at ADavis6@ebrschools.org if you need help initiating a Title IX report or have any questions regarding Title IX.
