T&H Title IX Training Course

Obtain Title IX Training and Documentation as Required by New Regulations

In May 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued its final Title IX regulations, which go into effect August 14, 2020. The new regulations significantly modify existing procedures and requirements, and establish a new investigation/decision-making process that educational institutions will need to become familiar with in a very short period of time. The regulations now require that multiple people in addition to the Title IX Coordinator be involved in each complaint of sexual discrimination, and that each of these persons receive specific training in such things as the new definition of sexual harassment, how to conduct an investigation and grievance process — including hearings, appeals, and informal resolution processes — and how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias.

Recognizing sexual harassment and responding to complaints has changed drastically. Thompson & Horton attorneys have spent hundreds of hours this summer reviewing and analyzing the new requirements, and have created a three-hour training program that will provide the basic training needed to comply with the new regulations, and make sure your people are ready to handle complaints this fall. In addition, Thompson & Horton has created a set of form templates that your district can adapt and use as part of the new investigation and determination process.
