Title IX


What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal law, enacted in 1972, stating that no person on the basis of sex shall 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." Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment or sexual violence such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery or sexual coercion. Orange County Public Schools shall comply with all requirements of Title IX. Each school has the responsibility to respond promptly and effectively to eliminate the sexual harassment or sexual violence, prevent its recurrence, and its effects, if the school knows or reasonably should know about sexual harassment or sexual violence that creates a hostile environment.
