South Page Non-Discrimination and Parents Right Know Notification

by Denise Green

Annual Notice Requirements:

Section IV-O of the OCR Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination in Vocational Education Programs of 1979 requires recipients of federal funding that operate vocational education programs to provide an annual notice of nondiscrimination prior to the beginning of each school year to:

  • Students
  • Parents
  • Employees
  • General public 

The annual notice of nondiscrimination must include a brief summary of the recipient’s program offerings and admissions criteria for career and technical education programs. It shall also include all of the protected classes; the name, title, address, telephone number and email address of person(s) designated to coordinate Title IX and Section 504 compliance; and the district’s grievance procedure. Announcement of this policy of nondiscrimination must be published in forums that will allow the entire public to view it, in at least one of the following:

  • Local newspapers
  • District publications
  • District website, and/or other media that reach the general public, including program beneficiaries, national origin persons with limited English language skills, and persons with disabilities.

If the district/agency’s service area contains a community of national origin minority persons with limited English language skills, the annual notice must be disseminated to that community in its language and state that recipients will take steps to assure that the lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in the recipient’s CTE programs. If the district chooses to publish the annual notice on the district website, the notice must appear prominently on the home page or within one click on an obvious link (i.e., Equity or Nondiscrimination tab.) If the district chooses to publish the annual notice solely on the website, the district must be reasonably assured that most community members have access to the Internet. Program offerings and areas of study are defined as the six service areas:

  • •Agricultural, Food, and Natural Resources
  • Applied Science, Technology, Engineering, and Manufacturing
  • Arts, Communication, and Information Systems
  • Business, Finance, Marketing, and Management
  • Health Science
  • Human Services

The South Page Community Schools offers career and technical programs in the following service areas:

  • Agriculture
  • Business
  • Industrial Technology
  • Family Consumer Science

It is the policy of the South Page Community School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational programs and its employment practices. There is a grievance procedure for processing complaints of discrimination. If you have questions or a grievance related to this policy please contact the district’s Equity Coordinator, Tim Hood, Superintendent of South Page Community Schools, 606 Iowa Avenue, College Springs Iowa, 712-582-3212, thood@southpageschools.com.
