Longview, TX (KETK) — The Longview Independent School District is being investigated by federal authorities looking into whether the district is in violation of the U.S. Title IX anti-discrimination statutes.
Sources say the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), a division of the U.S. Department of Education, was on campus, Monday, interviewing students and personnel and to take a look at facilities and equipment for gender equity in compliance with Title IX.
Title IX, a 1972 law, bans discrimination in sports and academics based on gender.
