Federal law, Title IX, State law and School policy prohibit anyone from discriminating against any student on the basis of actual or perceived sex, sexual orientation, and gender (including gender identity, gender expression, marital status, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition).


Male and female students have the right to equal learning opportunities in their schools and must be treated the same in all activities and programs, including:

  • Athletics

  • The classes they can take

  • The way they are treated in the classroom

  • The kind of counseling they are given

  • The extracurricular activities in which they can participate

  • The honors, special awards, scholarships and graduation activities in which they can participate

Students who feel that their rights are being violated have the right to take action and should not be afraid of trying to correct a situation by speaking to a school administrator, psychologist, counselor, or trusted adult at school, or filing a complaint (see Uniform Complaint Procedures). Students are
encouraged whenever possible to try to resolve their complaints directly at the school site.

Any student who believes he or she is being discriminated against in violation of Title IX has the right to file a complaint.
