House Bill 81 To Mandate Title IX Coordinator Information On State School Profiles Website

Delaware House Bill 81, introduced by Delaware State Rep. Melanie George Smith, would make sure each school district in the State of Delaware has a Title IX Coordinator and their contact information listed on the state school profiles website.  The responsibilities of this federally mandated program prevent any gender discrimination, and includes the following information about Title IX:

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972,as amended, is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. In addition to traditional educational institutions such as colleges, universities, and elementary and secondary schools, Title IX also applies to any education or training program operated by a recipient of federal financial assistance. Many of these education program providers/recipients became subject to Title IX regulations when the Title IX final Common Rule was published on August 30, 2000. All federal agencies that provide funding for any education or training programs have new responsibilities in ensuring that their recipients comply with the nondiscrimination mandate of Title IX and its procedural requirements by establishing a method for receiving and resolving sex-based discrimination complaints.  (taken from this website.)

This is the legislation on a state level, introduced today:
