Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational institutions receiving federal funds.  Title IX protects students, patrons and district employees from all forms of sexual discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity and femininity. Ultimately, school districts may not exclude, segregate, deny benefits to, or otherwise treat people differently according to their gender or gender identity.
