The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX is meant to protect people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that: 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.

2020 Regulation Changes

In May 2020, OAESV held a three-part series to discuss the May 6, 2020 Title IX Regulations. Part 1, seen below, is a detailed overview of the regulations.

Part 2 emphasizes the distinctions between K-12 and campus processes.

And the three-part series concluded with a Q&A session and guidance on using OAESV’s Title IX Advocacy Roadmap. In order to receive the roadmap via email, be sure to register or view the recording of at least one of the three parts. If you encounter any issues, please email
