    Title IX 

    Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 of the United States Congress specifically states, “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 educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance...” It is the policy of the Hastings Area School System to fully comply with Title IX. Therefore, the Board of Education, the administration, and the staff of the Hastings Area School System shall continue to take whatever steps may be necessary to prevent sexual discrimination in all educational programs and curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities. The School System’s policy specifies that all students have equal opportunities to participate in and benefit from school activities and services. It is a violation of that policy for the administration, teachers, or other staff members to discriminate against students on the basis of sex in disciplinary actions, entitlement and provision of services, selection of courses or programs, counseling services, physical education and athletics, and on the basis of marital or parental status. Likewise, no assistance, such as administrative or staff cooperation, faculty sponsorship, or use of school facilities on school time, shall be provided to any non-school organization or individual when it has been determined that such organization or individual discriminates on the basis of sex.
