What is Title IX?
Title IX is a Federal Civil Rights Statute that 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.

The new regulations became effective on August 14, 2020 and required the District to update certain policies, identify specific roles, and post information related to Title IX on the District website.
