Scott Scriven LLP Title IX Training

On August 14, 2020, new Title IX regulations became effective, requiring your district’s Title IX team to update its response to allegations of sex discrimination and harassment.  Our training sessions are designed to provide you with the information you need to implement the new regulations and comply with the law, while identifying best practices to address discrimination or harassment in your district.  Our attorney trainers have all been trained and certified by the Association of Title IX Administrators.

Introduction to Title IX

This 30-minute virtual webinar will provide all K-12 employees with the information needed to understand their obligations under the law, including the definition of sexual harassment and their obligations to report allegations of sexual harassment to the Title IX Coordinator.  Intended as an introduction, this training will provide an overview of Title IX, its new regulations, and serve as a base for future Title IX training necessary for your Title IX Team.
