    Title: Assurance of Compliance Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 
1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the 
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and the 
Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act.

    Abstract: The Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act (Boy Scouts 
Act), part of No Child Left Behind, and its implementing regulations 
(which are pending OMB final approval) create new enforcement 
responsibilities for OCR. To meet these responsibilities, OCR needs to 
collect assurances of compliance with the Boy Scouts Act, and proposes 
to do so by amending an existing document that was used to collect 
assurances of compliance with the other civil rights laws (Title VI, 
Title IX, Section 504, Age Discrimination Act) enforced by OCR. The 
respondents are State educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational 
agencies (LEAs). If an SEA or LEA receives funds made available through 
Education and violates the Boy Scouts Act, OCR and the Department of 
Justice can use the signed assurance of compliance in an enforcement 
proceeding. To view the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), please 
refer to Federal Register, Vol. 69, No. 201, dated Tuesday, October 19, 
2004, Page 61556.
