CUSD has the primary responsibility to ensure compliance with applicable Federal and state laws and regulations and has established procedures to address allegations of unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying, as well as complaints alleging violation of Federal or state laws governing educational programs and the charging of unlawful pupil fees. The District shall investigate and seek to resolve such complaints using policies and procedures known as the Uniform Complaint Procedures (UCP) adopted by our Board of Education.
Unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidations, or bullying complaints may be based on actual or perceived age, ancestry, color, ethnic group identification, gender expression, gender identity, gender, disability, nationality, national origin, race or ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or on a person's association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, in any program or activity that receives or benefits from state financial assistance.
The UCP shall also be used when addressing complaints alleging failure to comply with Federal and/or state laws in Consolidated Categorical Aid Programs, Migrant Education, Child Care and Developmental Programs, Child Nutrition Programs, Special Education Programs, and Safety Planning Requirements.
