Join us in Minneapolis for Title IX Coordinator and Administrator Level One Training & Certification!

Title IX Coordinators from all over the country continue to share with ATIXA their lack of clarity on the role, responsibilities, and the expectations the Department of Education has for their position. Even more so now, as newly proposed regulations from the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) make it difficult to navigate next steps.

With legislation, resolution letters, and open investigations always affecting our work as Title IX administrators, the Title IX Coordinator position continues to grow and develop over time. This course will address these questions and the confusion about the responsibilities of a Title IX Coordinator. This comprehensive course is focused broadly on the role of Title IX Coordinators, Title IX compliance, investigations, athletics equity, 504 disability compliance, and guidance for the proposed new regulations.

Attendees will follow a comprehensive curriculum conveying what every Title IX Coordinator needs to know to do that job and do it well. The four days will be intense, practical, and full of case studies and opportunities to apply the skills imparted in the training. You will not only spend four days with trainers who are some of the most knowledgeable experts on the topics, but also who are engaging and dynamic enough to hold your interest, keep you entertained, and take you from theory to practice with compelling case studies and relevant activities that take the content off the page and onto the campus.

Remember, this course is only offered three times a year, do not let this opportunity in MN pass you by!

 
Dates : Tuesday, June 4th - Friday, June 7th, 2019
