We wanted to share a quick update that the final Title IX rules are now set to be released sometime in March 2024. The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) just updated the final release dates on the Reginfo.gov website, which provides updates on federal regulatory actions, for both the Title IX rule on sexual harassment and the Title IX rule on athletic participation. Both Title IX rules were scheduled to be finalized in October 2023, but both received a large number of public comments, prompting the need for a longer review period by the Department of Education and pushing back the release date for both rules.  

We will continue to monitor the Title IX rule and agenda closely, so stay tuned for further insights and support from our Title IX team regarding the impact this new release date may have on your school’s policies, procedures, and training plans. And as always, do not hesitate to reach out for specific assistance with supporting your Title IX teams under the current rules.
