What is Title IX?

On August 14, 2020, new regulations surrounding Law Title IX, 20 § U.S.C. 1681 were implemented after the law underwent revisions that affected educational institutions. Specifically, Title IX:

  • Prohibits discrimination “on the basis of sex”;
  • Education programs and federally funded schools (whether or not sponsored by the educational institution);
  • Protects students, employees, applicants, & all other persons

Title IX Policy 102.1: Title IX Discrimination and Harassment Based on Sex Prohibited

In accordance, the Johnston Community School District has taken all necessary measures to train and inform Title IX coordinators and disseminate notice of the policy, Title IX obligations, and Title IX coordinator information. Our district coordinator is Tara Owen, tara.owen@johnston.k12.ia.us. Below are legal documents outlining Title IX Training in our district.
