TITLE IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in a school's activities and programs and requires all schools, from K-12 to post-secondary institutions, to take appropriate steps to prevent and redress issues of sex discrimination.
Title IX and Sex Discrimination. The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.
Although adopted in its original form to address inequalities and bias facing women and girls in programs and activities, including athletics, the scope of Title IX has broadened to provide protection against sexual harassment, bullying, pregnancy discrimination, gender-based stereotyping, gender-based harassment and sexual violence.
PA Cyber will adhere to all United States Department of Education requirements regarding Title IX including the publication of contact information for the Title IX Coordinator, the publication of the School's non-discrimination policy, and the publication for personnel training materials.
