• Title IX and as well as our Board Policy, particularly Section 7  protects all students, including LGBTQ students, from sex discrimination. Title IX encompasses discrimination based on a student’s failure to conform to stereotyped notions of masculinity and femininity. Section 7 states the Board of Education will pursue equal educational and extracurricular opportunities for all students without regard to race, color, nationality, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, disability, status as homeless, order of protection status, actual or perceived marital or parental status, gender identity, pregnancy, and any other legally protectable category. Provisions for these opportunities will be commensurate with student needs, abilities, interests, and diverse cultural backgrounds. Additional portions of Section 7 of the Board Policy further outlines protections and anti-harassment provisions.
