Title IX / Sexual Harassment Policy
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. Title IX provides, “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” The DOE is committed to complying with Title IX and ensuring that DOE schools and workplaces are in full compliance with this policy.
Staff, students, and parents should also continue to refer to Chancellor's Regulations A-831 and A-832 (which set forth the NYCDOE’s policy for prohibiting student-to-student sexual harassment and student-to-student discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying), and Chancellor's Regulation A-830 (which sets forth the DOE's Anti-Discrimination Policy, including for staff sexual harassment).
