Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which states:

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.

More details: Title IX and Sex Discrimination

The District also prohibits hostile environment harassment, which includes acts of verbal, nonverbal, or physical aggression, intimidation, or hostility based on sex or gender.

Sexual and gender-based misconduct can occur between people of different sex or gender or of the same sex or gender.
