The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:
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 (U.S. Department of Education, 2020).
York Road Elementary strives to provide an environment free of discrimination for all students and staff. For inquiries or concerns related to Title IX, please contact Crystal Guyton, Principal and Title IX Coordinator, or Derek Johnson, Assistant Principal and Title IX Coordinator, at 803-981-1950.
