TITLE IX Gender Equality
It is the policy of the State of California that all persons, regardless of their gender, should enjoy freedom from discrimination of any kind in the educational institution of the state. The laws found in the California Education Code 221.5-231.5 are collectively known as the Sex Equity in Education Act. These laws expand upon gender equity and Title IX laws which provide guidance to California’s education system. Temecula International Academy upholds all aspects of Title IX and CDE policies.
Title IX Complaints
Complaints regarding violations of federal and state anti-discrimination laws that ensure equality in education. Title IX prohibits discrimination, harassment, exclusion, denial, limitation or separation based on sex or gender. Title IX applies to both male and female students in any educational institution receiving federal funding.
Students or parents/guardians should report their verbal or written Title IX complaint to the school administrator or Title IX Coordinator within six months from the date the incident occurred. This will begin the informal investigation process which must be completed within 60 days. Complainants have a right to a timely and informal resolution at the school site.
If the complainant is dissatisfied with the school decision, an appeal of the findings may be made to the California Department of Education - Office of Equal Opportunity.
