Title IX: Prohibiting Sex-Based Discrimination

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) is a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in all educational programs and activities, including athletic programs. No person 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 operated by Cayucos Elementary School District. Title IX protects all participants in Cayucos Elementary School District's educational programs and activities, including students, parents, employees, and job applicants. Cayucos Elementary School District does not discriminate on the basis of sex. Discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment and sexual violence.

Cayucos Elementary School District and the Title IX Coordinator are aware of and acknowledge the new Title IX regulations released on May 6, 2020 and effective as of August 14, 2020. Our Title IX coordinator received training on these new regulations on August 14, 2020. The course "Title IX: Preventing Sexual Misconduct for Faculty and Staff" was taken through Traliant. We are in the process of reviewing and revising our Title IX policy and practices, which involves hearing from our stake-holders in order to implement a fair, thorough and impartial Title IX complaint process and Cayucos Elementary School District response. 

To report a sexual harassment incident, please reach out to our Title IX Coordinator, Superintendent Scott Smith at:
