The Mineral Point Unified School District is committed to providing an environment where every student and staff member feels supported, welcomed, and respected, and as such, shall not discriminate against any person on the basis of sex in any of its curricular, career, and technical education, co-curricular, student services, recreational, or other programs or activities, or in admission or access to any programs or activities offered by the District. Title IX’s requirement not to discriminate in any education program or activity extends to District students, certain admissions processes, and District employment. The Mineral Point Unified School District prohibits all forms of unlawful discrimination against students, employees, and other persons in all aspects of the District’s programs, activities, and operations.
As mandated by the federal Title IX statutes and the regulations set forth in Chapter 106 of Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations (“the federal Title IX regulations”), the District does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of sex in any education program or activity that the District operates. Inquiries about how the federal Title IX regulations apply to the District may be made to the District’s Title IX Coordinator (as designated below), to the Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education, or both.
