Title IX

 

Title IX
Enacted in 1972, Title IX is a Federal civil-rights law that protects everyone from being discriminated against on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities. Although Title IX has improved educational access for millions of students, sexual harassment continues to be a widespread problem. In May of 2020, the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) updated its guidelines for how schools must respond to sexual-harassment claims. The guidelines, which are effective August 14, 2020, apply to all types of sexual harassment, including student against student, student against school employee, school employee against school employee, and school employee against student. One of the new guidelines most important changes is that all employees, without delay, must report possible acts of sexual harassment to a Title IX coordinator.

Staff members at Lowellville Local School District are required to watch the courses outlined below. The courses will: define sexual harassment; explain schools’ obligations with regards to sexual-harassment claims under Title IX; and outline Title IX investigative procedures.
