 Title IX is a federal law that was passed in 1972 to ensure that male and female students and employees in educational settings are treated equally and fairly. It protects against discrimination based on gender.


Designation of responsible employee.
Each recipient shall designate at least one employee to coordinate its efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under this part, including any investigation of any complaint communicated to such recipient alleging its noncompliance with this part or alleging any actions which would be prohibited by this part. … Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972


Who Should Attend These Workshops? 

This is an ongoing project to have at least one person in each school building trained as a Title IX Coordinator. Federal law requires that each school district have at least one person designated and trained as the District Title IX Coordinator. Good practice calls for a Title IX Coordinator in each building. Training is essential.

There are no scholarships available.
