The purpose of the Methods of Administration (MOA) program is to ensure that all students, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, or disability, have equal access to high-quality career and technical education programs. Through its Methods of Administration authority, OCR, in partnership with the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education, oversees the civil rights compliance programs of state agencies that administer career and technical education. The state agencies’ responsibilities under the MOA program are set out in the Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex, and Handicap in Vocational Education Programs (Guidelines) (Appendix B of the Title VI regulation and the Section 504 regulation, and Appendix A of the Title IX regulation).
