  • Title IX Information

    Title IX graphic - decorative image

    Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination in the educational setting on the basis of sex. It prohibits discrimination between male and female students in the context of educational programs and activities, including athletics. Stated another way, no student should be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of or discriminated against in any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

    Title IX protects students from discrimination and harassment connected to any of the academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs or activities of schools, regardless of the location. Title IX protects both male and female students from discrimination and/or sexual or gender-based harassment. NOTE also that bullying may also involve harassment.
