As part of our mission, we are dedicated to meeting student athletic interest by working with schools to ensure that all students can meaningfully participate in athletics at CPS. The Office of Student Protections (OSP) and Title IX also helps monitor equitable participation at schools by investigating allegations of inequity in sports programs.
No one should be denied an opportunity to receive high quality athletic opportunities due to their gender. If you believe that you are being treated inequitably due to your gender or have questions about your rights under Title IX, the federal law that guarantees your right to equitable participation, please use the form below to submit a complaint, or email OSP at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Every year, as part of a Resolution Agreement CPS signed with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, all freshmen attending a CPS high school being monitored by the Agreement are asked to complete a survey that tracks interest in sports programs. This survey is an important tool utilized by OSP when working with athletic directors to identify athletic interest and expand sports offerings at CPS high schools.
To bring more awareness to the importance of Title IX in athletics, OSP is partnering with schools to post materials in gyms and locker rooms. View one of the posters below.
