Title IX

WHAT IS TITLE IX?
Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This law protects people from discrimination based on sex, including sexual harassment and sexual assault, in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

HOW DOES TITLE IX PROTECT STAFF & STUDENTS?
In summary, Title IX is a federal regulation that protects everyone, both students and staff, from sexual misconduct and discrimination regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

This means you have a right to be free from unequal treatment in educational programs or employment; sexual Harassment, such as unwelcome sexual advances, stalking or harassment on social media; sexual violence, such as sexual assault, dating violence or domestic violence.

Title I

Title I is the nation’s largest federal assistance program for schools, its primary goal being to help every child get a high-quality education and meet academic standards. Title I resources are directed towards students who need them most, helping children be successful in school.

Future currently operates as a Targeted Assistant Title I school, and is in the planning process to operate as a school wide program. This means that our current Title I resources are used to benefit only a sub-group of children enrolled in our school, as guided by our school’s “Targeted Assistant Plan”.

Title I staff support in our classrooms on a regular basis to provide instruction and assistance. Students may also be pulled out of the classroom at times for small group instruction and academic intervention.

Parents are a vital part of the Title I Program and are urged to participate through:
  • Membership in the Parent/Family & Teacher Group
  • Service on School Councils,
  • Classroom visits,
  • Participation in informational programs,
  • Family training workshops,
  • Family/teacher conferences, and
  • By signing the School-Family Compact.
The importance of a parent/family interest and involvement in his or her child’s education cannot be overemphasized.
In compliance with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), parents and families in a Title 1 school have the right to request information about the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) or instructional paraprofessional(s). You can view steps to doing so in this annual letter.
