ABOUT THE TRAINING

The Director’s Cut: The K-12 Title IX Coordinator Certification Course

This two-day Title IX Coordinator Certification Course provides all the training Title IX Coordinators, deputy coordinators, and designees are required to receive annually under the new Title IX rules. The training includes an examination of the Title IX grievance process, as well as a deep dive into the Title IX Coordinator’s broader duties to ensure your school complies with Title IX’s non-discrimination mandate. Upon completion of this virtual training course, attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion of Title IX Coordinator Training under the 2024 Amendments to the Title IX Regulations.

This training is designed for Title IX Coordinators, deputy coordinators, and designees, but it will also be helpful for any of your school’s Title IX personnel including investigators, decisionmakers, informal resolution facilitators, and internal counsel.

The new rules require training on an array of topics for Title IX Coordinators, deputies, and designees—and with good reason: these individuals play a critical role in preventing and responding to sex discrimination and harassment in schools. This course covers all required content, provides substantive and informative slides for later reference, and includes interactive scenarios to engage participants in working through real-world issues.

The training includes your school’s obligation to address sex discrimination in its education programs or activities; the scope of conduct that constitutes Title IX sex discrimination, including sex-based harassment, disparate treatment, disparate impact, retaliation, and failure to accommodate pregnancy and related conditions; and employees’ reporting and notification duties. The training also covers the Title IX grievance process, issues regarding relevant evidence and impermissible evidence, and how to serve impartially.

Finally, The Director’s Cut training covers the specialized training needed by Title IX Coordinators, deputies, and designees, including:

  • Coordinating compliance with Title IX and the Title IX regulations.
  • The actions a Title IX Coordinator must take when notified of conduct that reasonably may constitute sex discrimination, including initiating the grievance process, providing required notifications, and determining whether to offer informal.
  • Offering and coordinating supportive measures.
  • The actions schools must take to prevent sex discrimination and ensure equal access to education programs or activities, including required actions once notified of a student’s pregnancy or related condition.
  • Title IX recordkeeping requirements.
  • Key issues like sex-separate programs and facilities, athletics, confidentiality, law enforcement involvement, and employment; as well as sanctions and remedies, using surveys and audits, and monitoring for barriers to reporting.

Thompson & Horton’s Title IX Coordinator Certification Course provides all of this in an engaging and practical format to prepare your Title IX leaders for implementation in the 2024-2025 school year. The training is packed with practical tips and application examples to empower Title IX Coordinators, deputies, and designees to implement the new rules this fall.
