WPSS Statement Re: New Title IX Rules

"The Washington Parish School System stands in solidarity with Dr. Cade Brumley, State Superintendent of Education, regarding the recent changes to Title IX rules issued by the U.S. Department of Education.  Dr. Brumley has expressed serious concerns about the impact of these rules, which expand the interpretation of discrimination on the basis of sex to include gender identity and other categories.  

The new Title IX rules, set to take effect on August 1, 2024, could have significant implications for schools, including requirements related to locker rooms, restrooms, and the use of pronouns. 

These rules also have potential conflicts with Louisiana’s Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which governs school sanctioned athletic participation based on biological sex.

Dr. Brumley has been vocal in his opposition to these new rules, citing their potential to endanger students and undermine equal opportunities for females.  He is currently working with the Office of the Governor and the Attorney General to review the rules and assess their overall impact.  Legal challenges to the rules are expected, contesting what is seen as an overreach of the federal government’s authority.

In light of these developments, the Washington Parish School System is not changing policies and procedures related to any new Title IX rules and is placing a resolution on their May 16, 2024 board meeting joining other school systems across the state of Louisiana to refrain from altering policies or procedures at this time."
