• Equal Education Opportunity:     Title IX / Sexual Harassment

    In compliance with applicable outside agency guidelines, statutory and judicial requirements, and Board policy, the Tuscaloosa County School System shall place equal emphasis upon the non-discriminatory provision of educational opportunities for students.  The Tuscaloosa County School System does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, homeless status, marital status, non-English speaking ability, or migrant status in its programs and activities, and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.

    In accordance with Title IX (20 U.S.C. §1681, et seq.), the Board strictly prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex or gender in its programs or activities, including sexual harassment, as defined by law and Board policy. 

    Title IX protects every student’s right to educational opportunities and benefits from sex discrimination. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination under Title IX. TCSS Policy prohibits the discrimination of students based on sex or gender, including sexual harassment.
