Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") is a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in all educational programs and activities.

Title IX protects all participants in Salinas City Elementary School District educational programs and activities, including students, parents, employees and job applicants. The District does not discriminate on the basis of sex. Discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment and sexual violence.

In addition to Title IX, the California Education Code prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in schools (California Education Code § 220-221.1).
Other state and and federal laws also prohibit discrimination and ensure equality in education.

The District has a responsibility to respond promptly and effectively to sex-based discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence. If the District knows or reasonably should know about sex discrimination, it must take action to eliminate the sex discrimination, prevent its recurrence and address its effects. The District must resolve complaints of sex discrimination promptly and equitably.

In the event of a complaint regarding gender equity or sexual harassment, or discrimination including harassment, intimidation and bullying because of actual or perceived disability, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race, ethnicity, color, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital or parental status, military or veteran status, political affiliation or activity, or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, contact  SCESD’s Title IX Coordinator, Susana Mancera-Juarez.
