Title IX: What a Building Leader Must Know

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 applies to all federally funded schools at all levels and protects "students, employees, applicants for admissions and employment and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. Furthermore, all students and other persons are protected by Title IX, "regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, part – or full-time status, disability, race, or national origin." This includes protection extended into all academic areas and extracurricular opportunities provided by the district.
