Equal and free access to education is important to KCAD. Know your rights and responsibilities under Title IX.
Title IX (of the United States Education Amendments of 1972) is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Title IX is a landmark federal civil right that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It addresses sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence. Sexual violence includes attempted or completed rape or sexual assault, as well as sexual harassment, stalking, voyeurism, exhibitionism, verbal or physical sexuality-based threats or abuse, and intimate partner violence. It also addresses discrimination against pregnant and parenting students and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs.
In case of an emergency, call 911.
