Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal statute that prohibits sex discrimination in any education program or activity receiving 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.”

    Fabens Independent School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability, genetic information, or age in its programs, activities, or employment.

    What is Sexual Harassment?

    Sexual harassment constitutes unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the recipient's education program or activity.  Under Title IX, sexual harassment includes dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. 

    Employee Responsibilities

    An employer may be held liable if sexual harassment occurs and it or its agents "know or should have known that the conduct constituting harassment was occurring" and " failed to take immediate and appropriate corrective actions."
