From the California Department of Education:

"A complaint is a written statement alleging discrimination, harassment, or a violation of a federal or state law or regulation. A complaint must be filed by way of the Uniform Complaint Procedures (UCP) as written in the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, sections 4600-4687. Issues that may involve filing a complaint using the UCP are under various state and federal programs that use categorical funds such as Adult Education, Career Technical Education, Child Development, Consolidated Categorical Programs, Indian Education, Migrant Education, Nutrition Education, and Special Education.

Williams Settlement complaints regarding instructional materials, emergency or urgent facilities conditions that pose a threat to the health and safety of pupils, and teacher vacancy or misassignment may be filed anonymously. Schools shall have a complaint form available for these types of complaints. Schools will not reject a complaint if the form is not used as long as the complaint is submitted in writing."

TITLE IX

Every school district that receives federal funding is required to designate and/or adequately train at least one employee to coordinate the recipient's Title IX responsibilities.  Title IX regulations also require that the names and contact information of each Title IX Coordinator be made public by the educational institution.  

It is the policy of Santa Cruz City Schools District to ensure that all individuals are treated equally and that no person shall, on the basis of race, color, national origin, political affiliation, religion, marital status, sex, age, or disability, be excluded from participation or denied the benefits of any program or service or otherwise subjected to treatment that is different than that provided to others.

Complaints alleging noncompliance with this policy of discrimination should be directed to the Title IX Coordinators:
