Educational Equity Compliance Office

  • The Educational Equity Compliance Office (EECO) serves as the District's office for supporting students’ civil rights. The EECO has District-wide responsibilities to ensure compliance with federal and state nondiscrimination laws so that all students and community members are treated equitably in the District's programs and activities and provided an environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying including, but not limited to, all aspects of Section 504, Title VI and Title IX compliance.
    It is the law and District policy to afford equal rights and opportunities to all persons to attend school and participate in the District's programs and activities, regardless of actual or perceived sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race or ethnicity, ethnic group identification, ancestry, nationality, national origin, religion, color, mental or physical disability, age, or on the basis of a person's association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, or any other basis protected by federal, state, local law, ordinance, or regulation. 
    The EECO produces, updates and provides input to District policies on or related to nondiscrimination; provides training, support, and technical direction to District stakeholders, including students, parents/guardians, community, schools, Local Districts and central offices on harassment, discrimination, intimidation, and/or bullying issues involving protected characteristics; responds to and investigates harassment, discrimination, intimidation, and/or bullying complaint allegations, special education compliance complaints filed with external agencies, facilitates Office for Civil Rights complaint investigations, conducts and coordinates internal complaint investigations involving violations of federal and state laws identified under the Uniform Compliant Procedures regulations; and assists with State federal program monitoring reviews and other audits for our schools and District.
