Title IX - SB 1375 REQUIREMENTS

IMPLEMENTATION OF SENATE BILL 1375
REQUIREMENTS RELATED TO SEX EQUITY IN EDUCATION

Title IX remains a critical federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (including sexual harassment) in our schools. It protects male and female students and employees in any educational entity that receives federal funds. In addition, Title IX protects transgender students and students who do not conform to sex stereotypes. State law also prohibits discrimination based on gender (sex), gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

Senate Bill 1375 strengthens and expands the Title IX and state sex equity in education requirements. Specifically, on or before July 1, 2017, public schools, private schools, school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools are required to post information on their Internet Web site relative to the designated Title IX Coordinator, the rights of students and the responsibilities of schools, and a description of how to file a complaint.
