About Title IX

  • Union County Public Schools (UCPS) will not discriminate against anyone on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities, in admission to its educational programs or activities, or in employment policies and practices in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.  Inquiries regarding compliance with Title IX may be directed to the Title IX Coordinator.

    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 protects 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."

    Please be advised that the U.S. Department of Education's OCR is conducting a comprehensive review of the Department's regulation implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.  Once changes are finalized, UCPS will update its policies and procedures according to the new regulation.
