AALRR Breakfast Briefing - Title IX & K-12: It's Not Just About Athletics

Program: 11:30am - 12:30pm

Recently, the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education (OCR) has been pursuing a major Title IX enforcement initiative to address the problem of sexual violence on college and university campuses. While this has been reported in the media as a higher education issue, the fundamental nondiscrimination obligations are the same for K-12 districts. Not uncommonly, K-12 districts address issues of sexual harassment or sexual assault through student discipline and/or reports to law enforcement. But K-12 districts responding to such incidents must also take appropriate action to meet their Title IX obligations.

This session will address the steps that K-12 districts should be taking to ensure that they are in compliance with OCR enforcement guidelines under Title IX, and are providing a school environment free of sexual harassment and other forms of sex discrimination.
