Title IX – 2020 – New Changes to the Law: What Every School & District Leader Needs to Know!
On May 6, 2020, the United States Department of Education adopted sweeping changes that go into effect on August 14, 2020. School districts must adopt new policies and provide training of administration before that date. This workshop will discuss the new regulations. The workshop will walk you through the process to respond to a Title IX complaint and best next steps to prepare for the new requirements. It will also provide templates that you can use in your districts to address these requirements.
