Title IX Resource Center
On June 23, 2022, the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, the U.S. Department of Education issued new proposed regulations that focus on revisions to the grievance procedures, the scope of sex discrimination, and protections for pregnant individuals.
When sexual misconduct occurs, educational institutions must mobilize their resources to eliminate the harassment, prevent its recurrence and address its effects. Many measures must be taken within a very short period of time to ensure that an investigation is conducted and the complaint is addressed effectively and in a timely manner. This process has a lot of moving parts and many layers of legal requirements.
Our attorneys frequently help educational institutions thoughtfully comply with Title IX, the Violence Against Women Act and the Clery Act. For convenient access to key compliance documents, we have collected the resources we use and recommend to clients. Administrators should ensure their policies and procedures conform to the law — with colleges and universities paying special attention to the newly revised Clery Act regulations — and should follow those policies and procedures with an eye towards these provided resources.
The Bricker K-12 Title IX Toolkit is designed to assist school districts with their efforts to comply with the final Title IX Regulations published by the U.S. Department of Education on May 19, 2020, and effective on August 14, 2020.More

"After much research, I chose Bricker & Eckler’s Title IX trainings to use with the educators in West Kentucky. We have been extremely pleased with how thorough, clear and engaging each of the trainers have been. Kate Davis has been such an excellent resource and so easy to work with. Thank you, Bricker & Eckler for such a quality experience! "
"As a new administrator for my district during a global pandemic Title IX regulations left me feeling overwhelmed and struggling with many questions. The Bricker and Eckler training provided clear guidance during the Level 2 training. The training was exceptionally thorough and provided examples of Title IX cases giving you the opportunity to put the training into practice. The Title IX Toolkit also delivered clear instruction with the flow chart to maneuver the process with confidence. The trainers were knowledgeable, receptive to questions as well as patient with those needing further clarification. I would recommend this training to anyone who is new to Title IX regulations as you won’t be disappointed. I am looking forward to the Level 3 training. "
