The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX 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.
For more information on Title IX, you can visit the U.S. Dept. of Education website.
The Title IX Coordinator provides support to students, parents and employees who have experienced discrimination based on sex. To make a report or inquire about sex-based discrimination, including sexual harassment, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.
