PED’s Title IX Policy of Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in education program or activities, which receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance".
The New Mexico Public Education Department, including its Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, supports Title IX. The Public Education Department values diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, disability, age or sexual orientation in its programs and activities. Anyone who believes that they have been subjected to sex-discrimination under any educational program or activity of the Public Education Department receiving any federal financial assistance should contact the Title IX coordinator designated below. A copy of PED Policy 10, the Title IX Complaint Form, and a link to the NM Human Rights Division website can be found on the PED website: www.ped.state.nm.us.
