Non-Discrimination

 

It is the policy of the Frontier Conference not to discriminate on the basis of disability, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation in its athletic programs and related activities, in the selection of all league student/athletes or in the selection of officers for the Conference or other such positions.

Title IX

 

 Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally 

 funded education program or activity, which includes high school athletics.

     The Frontier Conference is and will remain in full compliance with Title IX regulations.

 

     The Frontier Conference will not knowingly discriminate in any interscholastic activity or sport.

 

Title IX Compliance

 

In order to be in compliance, an institution must be accommodating three components of Title IX:

     * Participation

               Examines the number of males and females that are participating

     *  Treatment in Program Areas

               Examines the number of programs offered by gender

               Examines the uniforms and equipment provided by gender

               Examines the facilities and schedule provided by gender

     *  Athletic Financial Assistance

               Examines the finances provided for the above areas

 

The basic test of compliance is "equivalence".  That is, the benefits, opportunities and treatment of each 

gender must be equal or equal in effect.  That does not mean they must be treated the same. Nondiscrimantory factors can account for different equipment needs for the football and the field hockey

teams.

Any sports-related gender equity (Title IX) complaint or concerns should initially be processed through the

group or entity concerned.  If the complaint concerns a school, league, the Conference or the CIF San Diego Section, the appeal should be directed to that entity for initial resolution.  The procedure for these     complaints can be found on the CIF San Diego Section website (www.cifsds.org) under governance, then

the Green Book.
