Title IX

Each student and employee have a right to learn and work in an environment that is free from unlawful discrimination. No student or employee shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived sex, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, or expression. New Designs Charter School is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination (including sexual harassment and sexual violence) based on sex in any educational program or activity. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for asserting or otherwise participating in claims of sex discrimination.

Non-Discrimination Policy

New Designs Charter School is committed to providing a safe working and learning environment, free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation and/or bullying. Federal and state law and the California Education Code mandate that schools annually publish and disseminate nondiscrimination notices. Schools are required to publish and disseminate annually, the "Nondiscrimination Statement," "Sexual Harassment Policy," and "Title IX and Nondiscrimination" student brochure to all employees and students. The schools’ programs, activities, and practices shall be free from discrimination based on 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 expression, or genetic information; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics (see also Parents & Students Handbook).
