In May, the U.S. Department of Education approved new Title IX regulations which significantly changed the expectations for how K-12 schools handle sexual misconduct and sexual harassment incidents on campus. Schools must be prepared to implement the new changes by August 14th, 2020. As policy providers begin to release revised policies and guidelines in the coming weeks, it is critical for school employees to understand what this important law requires of them.
To help you meet this challenge, Ennis Britton has developed two unique training opportunities for your staff. The first training will be offered on August 6th, 2020 in both live and archived formats. During the seminar, our experienced team of attorneys will provide an in-depth review of Title IX regulations, including the following:
- Understanding your district’s obligations under Title IX
- Receiving and handling Title IX complaints
- Managing the grievance process
- Conducting effective investigations
- Developing a measured response to Title IX violations
The training is specifically designed as an advanced-level training for compliance officers and administrators. The cost of the training is $150 per attendee. Certificates of attendance will be issued to those who attend. The training will take place online from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on August 6th. You must be registered in advance to receive the link to either the live or archived event.
In addition to this training, Ennis Britton will also offer a recorded Title IX training module that is designed as a professional development opportunity for all of your employees district-wide. It will be available on August 7th. The module will help your employees understand what Title IX requires and the role that they play in compliance, which has become even more important because of the recent regulation changes. The cost of the module is $150 per district. Districts are encouraged to share the module with all employees, especially those who will work with students. It is also encouraged that Districts develop an attendance list for those who view the module for future reference.
You may register to attend the live event or receive a link to either the archived presentation or training module on our website.
We hope you can join us for these events.
