Notice of Nondiscrimination.
Office for Civil Rights (ED), Washington, DC.
The Department of Education's (ED) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces several statutes that protect the rights of beneficiaries in programs or activities that receive financial assistance from ED. These laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin (Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964), sex (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972), handicap (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973), and age (Age Discrimination Act of 1975). This brochure delineates the requirements for recipients of federal funds to issue notices of nondiscrimination, clarifies the information that recipients should include in their nondiscrimination notices, and provides a sample notice of nondiscrimination. The brochure was designed to help recipients establish a notice of nondiscrimination that meets the requirements of the applicable regulations. The brochure also outlines the minor differences relating to the required content of notice nondiscrimination and the methods used to publish them. A list of regional OCR offices is included. (LMI)
