Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 is the landmark legislation that bans sex discrimination in schools, whether it be in academics or athletics. Title IX states:
“No person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal aid.”
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires non-discrimination on the basis of disability in State and Local Government Services.The Title IX and Title II coordinator for BUSD is Carolyn Patton, Special Services Director. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
