Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. § 1681(a),
prohibits sex discrimination and exclusion from participation in any educational program on the basis of sex by any program or activity receiving federal funding. Please contact the Executive Director if you have
any complaints or concerns regarding Title IX.
1. Discriminatory Treatment: Some discrimination is intentional and
easy to identify. This includes verbal or physical abuse or threats, and
racial or ethnic jokes. Another type of discrimination is more subtle and
more difficult to identify. Some examples include being assigned work
or being evaluated on the basis of race, disability, religion, gender, using
stereotypes, or being treated differently from other people. Both types
of discrimination are damaging.
Dealing with Discrimination: If you believe you are a victim or have
witnessed discrimination, it is suggested that you consider the following
a. Write down the details of what happened, including the names of
people involved in or witness to the incident. Talk to someone that you
trust: a friend, your parent, your teacher, a counselor, or an administrator.
b. Speak to the person who caused the problem. Explain what you find
objectionable, and that you believe it should be stopped or changed.
d. If you are unable to resolve the problem informally by following the
steps listed above, a formal complaint may be filed.
