Public Record Requests: As a public agency, the District adheres to the California Public Records Act which requires that governmental records shall be disclosed to the public, upon request, unless there is a specific reason not to do so. Permissible exemptions from disclosure include documents that invade an individual’s right to privacy (e.g., privacy in certain personnel, medical, or student records) or hinder the government’s need to perform its assigned functions in a reasonably efficient manner (e.g., maintaining confidentiality of investigative records, official information, records related to pending litigation, and preliminary notes or memoranda).

Title IX is a law passed in 1972 that requires gender equity in every educational program that receives federal funding. Most people who know about Title IX think it applies only to sports, but it is only one of 10 key areas addressed by the law: Access to Higher Education, Athletics, Career Education, Education for Pregnant and Parenting Students, Employment, Learning Environment, Math and Science, Sexual Harassment, Standardized Testing, Technology. The District’s Title IX Coordinator is the responsible for implementation and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with Title IX.  Please contact  Chief Officer of Human Relations  Tara Vikjord.
