Title IX Compliance
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1971 states, “No person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” The types of discrimination that are covered under Title IX include but not limited to sexual harassment; the failure to provide equal opportunity in athletics; discrimination in a school’s courses and programs; and discrimination based on pregnancy. The Division Superintendent designates the Title IX coordinator to coordinate efforts by Fairfax County Public Schools to comply with and carry out its responsibilities for implementing the law, including investigation of any complaint of alleged noncompliance with the law or accompanying regulations.
