Overview of Title IX

  • APS does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education program and activities, as required by Title IX. Such requirement to not discriminate extends to admission and employment.  As required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, APS prohibits all unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation on the basis of sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation in any employment decision, admissions determination, education program or educational activity.  Effective August 14, 2020, pursuant to federal regulations implementing Title IX, any complaint involving “sexual harassment” as defined by those federal regulations that occurs in an Atlanta Public Schools education program or activity against a person in the United States shall be addressed pursuant to the Atlanta Public Schools Title IX Grievance Procedure, available below.  Inquiries about the application of Title IX may be directed to the Assistant Secretary of the Office for Civil Rights, United States Department of Education, or to the following:
