Schools, colleges, and universities understandably have been scrambling to implement the new sexual harassment rule for Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. In addition to that herculean task, educational leaders also have been contending with challenges from COVID-19, reopening plans, racial equity issues, and many other vital concerns. It’s no wonder that you might have missed several essential changes to Title IX that are unrelated to sexual harassment. But school leaders at all levels of education must understand these changes and the resulting impacts they should have on practices in the new school year. Join Franczek attorneys Jackie Gharapour Wernz and Emily Tulloch for a complimentary webinar discussing all of the hot Title IX issues you may have missed but can’t ignore.
Topics covered will include:
--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.
