I am not sure which (single sex schools or single sex
classrooms) you are saying is prohibited.
Both the examples I gave were public single sex schools.
In the case of the California Schools, they are setting up
one each for both girls and boys.

In the case of Douglass College, New Jersey State College
has no college single sex college for the opposite sex.
While this may not be explicitly covered in Title IX, it
has been ruled on by the Supreme Court in the case against
VMI. Douglass College ignores that ruling.
