Title IX Team Training: Preparing Educational Institutions to Comply with OCR Guidelines
Skilled handling of sexual assault and harassment complaints by school districts, colleges and universities is crucial to enhance the safety of the schools’ communities and to stay compliant with Title IX and other laws. The OCR’s recent letters to schools and their Title IX Coordinators serve as reminders of the government scrutiny being given to this topic and of the need for proper training for Title IX Coordinators and teams.

- Civil rights in education
- Understanding sexual and gender-based violence
- Cultural awareness
- Drugs, alcohol and conset
- Conducting an investigation
- Interim measures
Benefits to Title IX Coordinators and Educational Institutions
