Thank you for participating in Title IX training. As you plan for the implementation of the new Title IX Rule, which becomes effective on August 14, 2020, school districts are required to post the following information on their websites in a prominent location:
- The contact information for the school’s Title IX Coordinator(s) (the name or title of the Title IX Coordinator, an office address, a telephone number, and an email address);
- The school’s non-discrimination policy; and
- Training materials used to train the school’s Title IX personnel. The regulations specifically require a school to post on its website: “All materials used to train Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers, and any person and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process. Posting anything less than “all materials” on the website is insufficient. Accordingly, merely listing topics covered by the school’s training of Title IX personnel, or merely summarizing such training materials is not the same as posting “all materials.”
These requirements are intended to ensure that a school’s entire educational community understands how to contact the Title IX Coordinator to report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment.
Here is a link to the Office of Civil Rights blog post related to posting requirements: https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/blog/index.html. If you have further questions about where and how to post these materials on your district’s website we suggest browsing other school district websites to obtain formatting ideas and working with your district’s technology department to ensure compliant posting.
Here are the links you can use to post the training materials from the training you participated in:
