U.S. Department of Education Title IX

  • Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. 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 subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

    All federal agencies that provide grants of financial assistance are required to enforce Title IX’s nondiscrimination mandate. The U.S. Department of Education gives grants of financial assistance to schools and colleges and to certain other entities, including vocational rehabilitation programs and libraries.

    New Title IX regulations were issued by the U.S. Department of Education on Aug. 14, 2020. All training materials used by Lindbergh Schools promote impartial investigations and adjudications of formal complaints of sexual harassment under Title IX. In compliance with Lindbergh Schools Board of Education policy, these training materials must be publicly available on our website.
