Title: Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex in Education Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance 

On November 29, 2018, the Secretary issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to clarify and modify the obligations of recipients of Federal financial assistance in redressing sex discrimination, including complaints of sexual misconduct, and the procedures by which they must do so. The Department proposed to clarify and modify Title IX regulatory requirements pertaining to the availability of remedies for violations, the effect of Constitutional protections, the designation of a coordinator to address sex discrimination issues, the dissemination of a nondiscrimination policy, the adoption of grievance procedures, and the process to claim a religious exemption. The Department also proposed to specify how recipient schools and institutions covered by Title IX (hereinafter collectively referred to as recipients or schools) must respond to incidents of sexual harassment consistent with Title IX’s prohibition against sex discrimination. The Department anticipates Federal Register publication in May 2020.
