HLERK Title IX Resource Materials
To assist school districts with implementing the amended Title IX sexual harassment regulations (effective August 14, 2020), we developed 16 resource materials. The Title IX resource materials are designed to support a school district’s response, investigation, and determination regarding sexual harassment allegations consistent with the requirements set forth in the amended Title IX regulations. Our resources are aligned with and reference the applicable IASB PRESS policies and administrative procedures. Additionally, they can be tailored for your school district.
