We’ve had a lot going on.
COVID-19. School reopening. Racial equity issues. And the cherry on top? Those Title IX Sexual Harassment regulations that we’ve been digging out from under since May 6.
With all that going on, I’d forgive you for feeling a bit like one of my favorite characters from Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, wondering, “What did I miss??”
And it turns out the answer in the world of Title IX is: “A lot!” The Department of Education has continued down its path of making significant changes to the Title IX landscape, including several issues unrelated to sexual harassment. Whether you’re a K-12 or higher education administrator, you need to come up to speed on these changes and the resulting impacts they should have on practices in the new school year.
Our team is offering a complimentary webinar to help you do just that. Join us (Jackie Gharapour Wernz and Emily Tulloch) to discuss all of the hot Title IX issues you may have missed but can’t ignore, including:
- The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) ’s rescission of Title IX guidance documents, including the 2001 Sexual Harassment Guidance and the 2015 resources for Title IX Coordinators,
- OCR’s publication of letters addressing the rights of LGBTQ students under Title IX in response to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision recognizing rights for LGBTQ employees under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and
- OCR’s recent update to its Case Processing Manual (the CPM).
The latter portion of the webinar will also include time for your Title IX questions, including those relating to Title IX sexual harassment.
