Title IX

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 individuals from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. On May 6th, the Department of Education issued its Final Rule changing the Title IX obligations of all schools and the new rule is to come into effect on August 14th, 2020. You can view the full final rule at: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/05/19/2020-10512/nondiscrimination-on-the-basis-of-sex-in-education-programs-or-activities-receiving-federal

The U.S. Department of Education recently launched a new web site to help students and schools understand the new Title IX regulations. The link below takes you to a public relations type of page  with numerous links including video training sessions and other resources.
