Title IX

Title IX Compliance: A Shared Responsibility

Title IX compliance is a shared responsibility of an entire district, from top-level administration to all levels of staff.  Title IX protects students, employees and applicants for employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to address stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. All students (as well as other persons) at institutions/districts that receive federal funds are protected by Title IX—regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, race, or national origin—in all aspects of a recipient’s educational programs and activities (OCR Title IX Resource Guide).

In La Feria ISD, we believe in treating all students and employees with dignity and respect therefore we take these matters seriously. It is the responsibility of all staff, teachers, and administrators to report complaints of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and/or any other forms of sexual misconduct that they receive or of which they may become aware by immediately contacting the Title IX Coordinator, Lillian L. Ramos at 956-345-4507.
