Title IX

Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This law protects people from discrimination on the basis of gender in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or because a person made charges, testified or participated in any complaint action under Title IX. Title IX states:

 

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

— Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act

 

Title IX Statement

It is the policy of Shalom School to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in any of its educational programs or activities, admissions, hiring, or personnel practices. This policy is in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

 

Prohibited sex discrimination covers sexual harassment including sexual violence. Sexual harassment is conduct that is sexual in nature and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it adversely affects a student’s ability to benefit from the School’s activities or educational programs or creates a hostile or abusive educational environment. Sexual violence is a form of sexual harassment, prohibited by Title IX which includes conduct that is criminal in nature. Acts may include rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual coercion, unwanted touching, dating violence, and sexually motivated stalking.

 

Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX may be referred to Shalom School’s Title IX Coordinator.
