St. Mary Parish is in compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 mandates. These mandates dictate with certain limited exceptions that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
The School Board has designated one person to coordinate the non-discrimination efforts for the school system as well as to ensure and assure that prompt and equitable resolution of student complaints alleging discrimination be effectively processed through the Board's established grievance procedure.
Parents with questions or concerns about Title IX should contact Barbara Lancelin, Title IX Coordinator, at the Office of Special Education at (337) 828-1767.
