Title IX

Last Updated: 10/10/2022 2:14 PM

Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972.  This law protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal funds.  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."

The Putnam County ESC has developed a team to address issues and concerns regarding Title IX. Our Title IX team has been trained by the office of Scott Scriven LLP.  The training materials can be found here  If you require further information, support or would like to file a complaint, contact one of the ESC's Title IX Coordinators listed below.
