WHAT IS TITLE IX?

WHAT IS TITLE IX?

Title IX is a federal law that was passed in 1972 to ensure that male and female students and employees in educational settings are treated equally and fairly. It protects against discrimination based on sex (including sexual harassment). In addition, Title IX protects transgender students and students who do not conform to gender stereotypes. State law also prohibits discrimination based on gender (sex), gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The preamble to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states that:
 
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
 
Title IX requires that each school district have at least one person designated as the Title IX Coordinator.

2020 Title IX Amendments

On May 6th, 2020 the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR), released a finalized version of the new Title IX Regulations. Amendments to Title IX became effective on August 14, 2020. Specifically, The Final Rule changes the way in which institutions and local education agencies are required to respond to allegations of sexual harassment. The new Title IX regulations are intended to clarify sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination and expand on the definition of sexual harassment. The new Title IX regulation can be found in the Code of Federal Regulations at 34 CFR Part 106.
