Title IX

Title IX Compliance

“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 receiving Federal financial assistance.” -Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender identity) in educational programs and activities. The new Title IX Regulations became effective Aug. 14, 2020. At the time of this publication, the Title IX Regulations have the full force and effect of law. Title IX requires Pleasanton Unified School District to take immediate and appropriate action to investigate when it knows or reasonably should know of a possible Title IX violation.

Sex discrimination under the new Title IX regulations may include the following:

  • Sexual harassment where an employee conditions some type of aid, benefit, or service of the District on the student's participation in unwelcome sexual conduct
  • Sexual harassment where someone engages in unwelcome conduct on the basis of sex that is severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive
  • Sexual assault
  • Dating violence on the basis of sex
  • Domestic violence on the basis of sex
  • Stalking on the basis of sex
