Training Overview

DEADLINE ALERT: August 1, 2024 NEW Title IX Investigator Certification 

15 state lawsuits filed–as of May 2, 2024. Numerous politicians, lawyers, teachers, and coordinators are reading, learning, and adjusting . . . and filing their own lawsuits. Why?  


Effective August 1, 2024, final regulations related to Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 will usher in significant changes to existing regulations and obligations.  


Title IX, a federal law, bars sex-based discrimination in educational programs or activities supported by federal funding. They require adherence, and at times investigations, which can include more than just sexual harassment claims, or sex-based discrimination complaints. With new and expanded definitions of sex and gender protections, investigators need to know their obligations for reporting, meeting legal standards, and training their teams.

  • Conduct all types of Title IX investigations 
  • Prepare necessary investigation reports
