Title IX: Prohibiting Sex-Based Discrimination
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, including athletic programs. No person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity operated by Coast Unified School District. Title IX protects all participants in Coast Unified School District's educational programs and activities, including students, parents, employees, and job applicants. Coast Unified School District does not discriminate on the basis of sex. Discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment and sexual violence.
Coast Unified School District and the Title IX Coordinator are aware of and acknowledge the new Title IX regulations released on May 6, 2020 and effective as of August 14, 2020. We are in the process of reviewing and revising our Title IX policy and practices, which involves hearing from our stake-holders in order to implement a fair, thorough and impartial Title IX complaint process and Coast Unified School District response.
To report a sexual harassment incident, please reach out to our Title IX Coordinator:
Superintendent Scott Smith
1350 Main Street
Cambria, CA 93430
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 federal laws also prohibit discrimination and ensure equality in education.
