Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states: No person in the Unites States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. Protections include providing equity in educational opportunities for minority students as well as for students who have limited proficiency in English.

If you believe your student has been discriminated against on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sexual orientation, in its educational programs and activities, or harassed in a manner that is creating a hostile environment for your student, you are directed to Policy 4120, paragraphs 1.5A through 1.5G which outlines procedures for filing a Title VI complaint
