TITLE II, CCR TITLE 5, TITLE IX, AND SECTION 504

The West Covina Unified School District is committed to providing a safe school environment where all individuals in education are afforded equal access and opportunities. The District’s academic and other educational support programs, services, and activities shall be free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any individual based on the person’s actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.

The District does not discriminate in enrollment in or access to any of the activities and programs available and provides equal access to the Boys Scouts of America or other designated youth groups.  Specifically, state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in enrollment, counseling, and the availability of physical education, athletic activities, and sports. Transgender students shall be permitted to participate in gender-segregated school programs and activities and to use facilities consistent with their gender identity. The District assures that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in District programs.

Copies of WCUSD’s policies including Uniform Complaint Procedures, Sexual Harassment, Nondiscrimination, Title IX Rights and Protection are available on the WCUSD website.

Questions, complaints, or requests for additional information regarding these laws may be forwarded to the District’s designated compliance coordinators.
