Title IX - Gender Equity & Sexual Harassment

  • What is Title IX?

     

    "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."

    Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX"), is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in all educational programs and activities, including athletic programs. No person 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 operated by the District. While Title IX had a significant impact on equal opportunity in school sports, the focus of the law is currently aimed at prevention of and response to incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence.

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of sex, which includes promoting and maintaining a safe and respectful school environment free from sexual harassment or sexual violence. Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination in that they deny or limit an individual's ability to participate in and/or benefit from the FNSBSD's programs or activities.

    Title IX information provided here applies to every school site and to all district programs and activities.
