Title IX Training

W05


Charter schools that receive any federal funds are required to comply with Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs. The latest Title IX regulations require schools to have updated Title IX grievance procedures in place for sexual harassment. Schools must designate team members to serve in the required Title IX roles, ensure those team members receive training, and post the training materials on the school's website. This session is tailored to meet the federal requirements in 34 C.F.R. § 106.45 and help your school handle Title IX complaints. [Note this will need to be tailored depending on proposed federal regs]
