Title IX

The Wiseburn Unified School District is committed to protecting students' and employees' civil rights and ensuring all District programs and activities provide an environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, and intimidation and/or bullying.

Title IX is a federal law that was passed in 1972 to ensure that male and female students and employees in educational settings are treated equally and fairly. It protects against discrimination based on sex (including sexual harassment). In addition, Title IX protects transgender students and students who do not conform to sex stereotypes. State law prohibits discrimination based on gender (sex), gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The preamble to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states that:

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Statement of Nondiscrimination: Complaints of unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying are investigated through the District Uniform Complaint Procedure.
