Public Notification of Nondiscrimination in Career and Technical Education Programs

Notice of Required Annual Public Notification of Nondiscrimination in                                            Career and Technology Education Programs

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Education requires that districts, including charter schools, provide career and technical education (CTE) programs, services, and activities in accordance with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.  The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has regulatory responsibilities for CTE programs in Texas public secondary schools and is required to adopt a civil rights compliance program to identify, remedy, and/or prevent discrimination in the CTE programs operated by districts.

Requirements for compliance are found in the document, Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex, and Handicap in Vocational Education Programs (Guidelines).  A link to the full text can be found at the CTE Methods of Administration (MOA) webpage, which is located on the School Improvement website at:  http://tea.texas.gov/si/MOA/

One important requirement of the Guidelines is that, prior to the beginning of each school year, every district providing CTE programs must advise students, parents, employees, and the general public that all career and technology education opportunities will be offered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, or disability.  Local newspapers, websites, or other media that reach the general public may be utilized to disseminate the required notification.  Information regarding this requirement can be found in Section IV – O of the Guidelines under Public Notification.
