Compliance with Federal Regulations
The Bowling Green R-1 School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or disability in admission or access to, or treatment of employment, in its programs and activities. Inquiries concerning the application of Bowling Green R-1 School District's policy of nondiscrimination
should be directed to the Superintendent's office.
Sex Discrimination Prohibited: Sex discrimination in federally assisted educational programs is prohibited by Title IX of the Educational Amendments. The federal regulations required that the Bowling Green R-1 School District, as a recipient of Federal Assistance to its education program, notify all applicants for admission and employment, students and parents, employees, referred agencies, and all employees and professional organizations having agreement with the district that it does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities and that is required by Title IX not to discriminate in such a manner.
Anyone believing that non-compliance or misrepresentation of the Title IX provision exists should contact the school district staff member involved. Should this prove to be unsatisfactory, a written complaint should be filed with the Superintendent's office. Should the complainant be dissatisfied with the resolution of the compliance officer, the complainant may make a written appeal to the Board of Education, with a copy of the appeal sent to the Superintendent. The final decision rests with the Board of Education except that if the decision is unsatisfactory to the complainant may appeal the decision to the Office for Civil Rights in Kansas City.
Non-Discrimination of Handicapped: The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, states that no institution receiving federal funding can discriminate against handicapped persons. Bowling Green R-1 Schools do not discriminate against handicapped persons. Inquires by persons concerning employment practices or related matters for the handicapped or protection assured them by Title IX may be directed to the Superintendent's office.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): The Bowling Green R-I School District serves notice that all the District’s facilities and programs meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Any person having inquiries should contact the Superintendent’s Office.
