The Department of Justice and the Office for Civil Rights, on June 23, 2021, put all public, K-12 schools and many colleges and universities that receive federal funding on notice that all LGBTQ students are protected by Title IX and that sex discrimination against these students because of their gender identity or sexual orientation violates Title IX. Those who attend this presentation will learn about the best practice for those schools required to comply with Title IX to make certain that their Title IX policies put all on notice that harassment of the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity violates Title IX. In addition, those who attend will be able to advise their school clients that all staff and students should receive training about what is now considered a violation of Title IX that includes harassment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and what the procedures are for reporting any alleged violation of Title IX. What’s more, attendees will understand why the DOE’s June 23, 2021 publication is an excellent guide for school administrators to review and include within their revised Title IX policies, protocols, and procedures.
The goal of this presentation, therefore, is to provide a possible road map for law practices to use so that they can help their clients understand what changes may be needed to existing Title IX policies, protocols, and procedures to ensure that all students are protected from illegal sexual harassment and sexual violence.
