Title IX Non-Discrimination Protection
The Board of Education takes seriously its obligations to ensure that no student or employee suffers discrimination on the basis of sex, as defined in Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. Title IX is a federal law enforced through the Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights. 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 includes the following: prohibition of sex discrimination, harassment, athletics, employment, pregnant students, and recruitment, admission, and programs.
Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, which is defined as unwelcome conduct that a reasonable person would determine to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the District’s education program or activity; and, includes sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, as defined by applicable law.
