You might want to take a close look at the Title IX Regulation Section
106.31 which governs Education Programs and Activities. Specifically
subsection (b) paragraphs 4 and 5.

106.31 Education Programs and Activities
(a) General. Except as provided elsewhere in this part, no person
shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied
benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any academic,
extracurricular, research, occupational training, or other education
or activities operated by a recipient which receives of benefits from
Federal financial assistance. This subpart does not apply to actions of a
recipient in connection with admission of its students to an education
program or activity of
(1) a recipient to which Subpart C does not apply, or
(2) an entity, not a recipient, to which Subpart C would not apply if the
entity were a recipient.

(b) Specific prohibitions. Except as provided in this subpart in
provide any aid, benefit, or service to a student, a recipient
shall not, on the basis of sex:
(1) Treat one person differently from another in determining whether
such person satisfies any requirement or condition for the
provision of such aid, benefit, or service:
(2) Provide different aid, benefits, or services or provide aid,
benefits, or services in a different manner,
(3) Deny any person any such aid, benefit, or service,
(4) Subject any person to separate or different rules of behavior,
sanctions, or other treatment
(5) Discriminate against any person in the application of any rules
of appearance
(6) Aid or perpetuate discrimination against any person by providing
significant assistance to any agency, organization, or person which
discriminates on the basis of sex in providing any aid, benefit or service
to students or employees;
(8) Otherwise limit any person in the enjoyment of any right,
privilege, advantage, or opportunity.

The full text of Title IX and it regulation are available on line from the
U.S. Department of Education.

Your district Title IX compliance person should be aware of this and , at
least in theory, the one to whom the student should go with this grievance.
