Thompson & Horton Offers Title IX Compliance Training for the 2021-2022 School Year

Many educational institutions – particularly smaller colleges, community colleges, and K-12 school districts – have not trained their Title IX teams sufficiently to handle Title IX sexual harassment matters when they arise. Many training options on the market are too costly, either in time or money, to be feasible. Although there is no specific hours requirement for Title IX training, the commentary to the 2020 Title IX regulations references eight hours as a ballpark estimate of the amount of annual training needed for team members.

Hit the Brakes: Stop, Drop, and Title IX When You Hear “Sex”

We have been living with the 2020 Title IX regulations for well over a year, but some basics continue to trip us up. One of the biggest for primary and secondary schools is helping building-level administrators remember to hit the brakes when they learn of sex-based misconduct. Rushing to collect statements, impose consequences (even temporary ones), and collect other evidence could lead to a Title IX violation if the conduct ends up being covered by the law. For this reason, in my opinion, if a school system does one thing this fall to address Title IX, training building-level admins and employees to stop, drop, and call the Title IX office as soon as they learn of any conduct based on sex.
