What are NAPE members doing to recognize the significance of Title IX?? Tell us by June 20! We’d like to share your vision. Title IX is a federal civil rights law in the United States of America that was passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This is Public Law No. 92‑318, 86 Stat. 235, codified at 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681–1688. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding – including state and local educational agencies. These agencies include approximately 16,500 local school districts (K-12), 7,000 postsecondary institutions (most colleges and universities), as well as charter schools, for-profit schools, libraries, and museums. Also included are vocational rehabilitation agencies and education agencies of 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories and possessions of the United States.
