Title IX


Title IX is a federal law that was passed in 1972 to ensure that male and female students and employees in educational settings are treated equally and fairly.  It protects against discrimination based on sex, including sexual harassment, and transgender students or students who do not conform to sex stereotypes.  State law also prohibits discrimination based on gender (sex), gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

The District programs, activities, and practices shall be free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying based on actual or perceived 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; or on the basis of a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.  If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying, you should immediately contact:

  • The school site principal and/or Hans Barber, District Complaint Officer at (650) 590-5930 or hbarber@scsdk8.org.
