Title IX: Prohibiting Sex-Based Discrimination
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) is a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in all educational programs and activities, including athletic programs. 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 operated by SLOCOE. Title IX protects all participants in SLOCOE’s educational programs and activities, including students, parents, employees, and job applicants. SLOCOE does not discriminate on the basis of sex. Discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment and sexual violence.
Our County Office of Education and the Title IX Coordinator are aware of and acknowledge the new Title IX regulations released on May 6, 2020 and effective as of August 14, 2020. Our Title IX team received training on these new regulations on August 12, 2020, and have made our Title IX training materials available online for review. We are in the process of reviewing and revising our Title IX policy and practices, which involves hearing from our stake-holders in order to implement a fair, thorough and impartial Title IX complaint process and SLOCOE response. As always, if you want to report a sexual harassment incident, please reach out to our Title IX Coordinator, Katherine Aaron, at:
