OCR issues guidance on Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. §2000(d) et seq, prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. School districts that receive federal funds must not intentionally discriminate on the basis of race, color or national origin, and must not implement facially neutral policies that have the unjustified effect of discriminating against students on these bases. The United States Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is charged with enforcing Title VI.
