Ohio Department of Education Compliance
Statement of Compliance with Federal Law
The Ohio Department of Education complies with all Federal laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination, and with all requirements of the U.S. Department of Education.
Compliance with Title IX
What Title IX is: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is the landmark federal law that bans sex discrimination in schools, whether it is in curricular, extra-curricular or athletic activities.
Title IX states: “No person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal aid.”
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) is in compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended, 20 U.S.C. 1681 et seq. (Title IX), and its implementing regulation, at 34 C.F.R. Part 106, which prohibits discrimination based on sex. The ODE, as a recipient of federal financial assistance from the United States Department of Education (USDOE), is subject to the provisions of Title IX. ODE does not discriminate based on gender in employment or in any educational program or activity that it operates.
