• Title IX - Athletics

    Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") is most commonly associated with its application to athletic opportunities. However, Title IX applies to all TUHSD and it prohibits discrimination in all educational programs and activities, not just athletics. Athletic programs are considered educational programs and activities.

    Title IX provides female athletes the right to equal opportunities in athletics. The Taft Union High School District is committed to providing equal opportunities and benefits to all of its student-athletes.

    The TUHSD’s Title IX Officer is Teri Parker, Chief Human Resources Officer. To file a complaint with TUHSD regarding Title IX, please contact Mrs. Parker.
