Collaboration for the Win! Title IX and Special Education in K-12

Assuming they are finalized as proposed, the new Title IX rules will for the first time require ongoing “consultation” between the Title IX Coordinator and special education team when a party to a Title IX complaint is a student receiving special education or related services. But if you work in Title IX or special education in K-12 public schools, “collaboration” should already be a part of your vocabulary in this context. There are so many complex issues at the intersection of Title IX and special education that make collaboration between Title IX and special education teams essential. Are you doing all you need to do to protect your educational institution from legal risks involving Title IX and special education?

How to Make—and Keep—a Resolution to Prepare for the New Title IX Rules

We are barely into 2023, and it’s shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Title IX. From transgender bathroom bans and athletic participation battles to growing scrutiny on general athletics equity and pregnant and parenting students, Title IX will continue to have its moment in the sun in 2023 as it has for the past few years. Of course, the biggest news for Title IX in 2023 will undoubtedly be the issuance of the Biden administration’s new Title IX rule. The Department of Education recently confirmed that it intends to hoist the new regulation on schools in May 2023. Schools, colleges, and universities will once again have to comply with an entirely new grievance structure quickly over the summer.

Those who spent the summer of 2020 scrambling to prepare for the 2020 Title IX rules know that implementing new rules over the summer is a huge feat. If you haven’t already resolved to begin preparing now to be ready for that process when it comes, you should! Like any other New Year’s resolution, there is a risk of giving up without a plan. Don’t have one? Don’t worry. The Thompson & Horton Title IX team has you covered. Keep reading for the essential action plan to help you achieve your Title IX goals in the New Year.
