from Education Week

"OCR finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the District is in violation of Title IX for excluding Student A from participation in and denying her the benefits of its education program, providing services to her in a different manner, subjecting her to different rules of behavior, and subjecting her to different treatment on the basis of sex," OCR regional director Adele Rapport wrote to Palatine, Ill.-based Township High School District 211 Superintendent Daniel Cates. more
