Investigating Claims of Sexual Misconduct under OCR's New Guidance
Understand your District's Increased Responsibilities in Title IX Investigations Details

In September 2017, the United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights issued a Q&A on Campus Sexual Misconduct that increases the responsibilities that schools have for addressing and investigating sexual misconduct and sexual harassment.  From issuing guidance on responding to unreported incidents of misconduct to describing expectations for implementing grievance procedures, conducting “equitable”  investigations in a “timely manner,” and  notifying parties of the outcome, OCR has bestowed additional layers of obligations on public schools.   

It is vital that school districts both understand these new procedural and operational expectations,  and are able to separate their legal duties under Title IX from OCR’s suggestions on best practices. This two-part webinar will allow participants to confidently answer questions concerning whether their school district should revise policies and procedures concerning sexual misconduct, and provide a roadmap to doing so that can help districts diminish potential liability and protect resources. Each part is 1.5 hours.
