Title IX

The Hamilton School District shall not discriminate in the opportunities provided for admission to or participation in athletic programs or activities, standards and rules of behavior, disciplinary actions or facilities usage on the basis of sex, race, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, physical, mental, emotional or learning disability, color, or any other factor prohibited by state or federal laws and regulations. This policy does not prohibit the District from placing a student in a program or activity based on objective standards of individual performance, providing separate programs in interscholastic athletics for males and females if such programs are comparable in type, scope, and support from the district, or from providing separate toilet, locker, and shower facilities if the facilities are comparable. Discrimination complaints shall be processed in accordance with established discrimination complaint procedures.

In adding a new sport or expanding an existing sport, the District will not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, color, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, physical, mental, emotional, or learning disability, or any other factor prohibited by state or federal laws or regulations.
