Title IX Information

Title IX is the portion of the Federal Educational Amendments of 1972 which prohibits sex discrimination in Federally assisted education programs. Specifically, Title IX states:

"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."

The governing regulations cover all aspects of sex discrimination in schools with regard to admissions, treatment of students, and employment, including sexual harassment.

The Orange Unified School District is committed to providing equal opportunities for all in the educational programs and activities it conducts, and for all employees consistent with Title IX. In its efforts to comply with Title IX, the Orange Unified School District affirms that no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity.

Inquiries concerning student matters related to Title IX may be directed to Deputy Superintendent Gunn Marie Hansen, Educational Services, at (714) 628-4466 or ghansen@orangeusd.org.

Inquiries concerning employment matters related to Title IX may be directed to the Assistant Superintendent Ed Kissee, Human Resources, at (714) 628-5515 or edk@orangeusd.org.

Uniform Complaint Procedures

The Board of Education recognizes that the District is responsible for complying with applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs. The District shall follow uniform complaint procedures when addressing complaints alleging (1) unlawful discrimination in any program or activity that receives or benefits from state financial assistance, based on sex, ethnic group identification, race, national origin, religion, color, mental or physical disability, or any basis that is contained in the prohibition of hate crimes set forth in subdivision (a) of section 422.6 of the Penal Code or (2) failure to comply with state or federal law in adult education, vocational education, child care and development programs, child nutrition programs, consolidated categorical programs, migrant education, and special education programs; (3) instructional materials, emergency or urgent facilities conditions that pose a threat to the health and safety of pupils or staff, and teacher vacancy and mis-assignment, as set forth in Education Code section 35186.

Education Code: 35186 (William’s) states:

1. There should be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials. That means each pupil, including English learners, must have a textbook or instructional materials, or both, to use in the class and to take home to complete required homework assignments.

2. School facilities must be clean, safe, and maintained in good repair.

3. A complaint form may be obtained at the school or district office.

The Board encourages the early, informal resolution of complaints at the site level whenever possible. The Board prohibits retaliation in any form for the filing of a complaint, the reporting of instances of discrimination, or for participation in complaint procedures. Such participation shall not in any way effect the status, grades, or work assignments of the complainant. The Board acknowledges and respects student and employee rights to privacy. Discrimination complaints shall be investigated in a manner that protects the confidentiality of the parties and the facts. This includes keeping the identity of the complainant confidential except to the extent necessary to carry out the investigation or proceedings, as determined by the Superintendent or designee on a case-by-case basis. Other types of complaints and responses thereto are public records. The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that employees designated to investigate complaints are knowledgeable about the laws and programs for which they are responsible. Such employees may have access to legal counsel as determined by the Superintendent or designee.

The District has designated the Administrator, K-12. Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, and GATE, to address all complaints pertaining to Education Code 35186 (William’s) as indicated above. Executive Director, Elementary Education, (714) 628-4463, has been designated to address official Elementary School level Official Complaints. Executive Director Secondary Education, (714) 628-4467, has been designated to address official Secondary School level official complaints.
