It’s Summer! But Wait… What About Those Title IX Cases?

Summertime usually brings a well-earned break for educational administrators. But for Title IX coordinators and other Title IX team members, summer break can bring a whole new headache. Now that parties and witnesses have left campus for the summer, what do you do with that pile of Title IX cases on your desk? Perhaps some parties have even graduated or are not returning to your educational institution again. And what about that report that rolled in during the last week of school? Here are a few tips for preventing Title IX from ruining your summer.

Or, on the other end of the spectrum, perhaps it’s an account on which people can anonymously “expose” accused perpetrators of sexual harassment, including sexual violence and assault—and the alleged perpetrators report that it’s just not true. How do educational leaders distinguish between sexual harassment and more benign activity on Instagram, Snapchat, (the newly reemerging) Yik Yak, and the like?

OCR declined, standing by its plan to issue new proposed regulations in May 2022.
