Last Chance to Register for the Inaugural PreK-12 Title IX Administrator Training and Certification Course

July 23rd-25th, 2018
Hosted by Santa Ana Unified School District
Santa Ana, CA

PreK-12 Administrators 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. There is confusion over whether there is more to the Coordinator role than being a designee for Office for Civil Rights (OCR) communications, who their Administrator is, and what that person is supposed to do. With legislation, resolution letters, and open investigations continuing to affect 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 an Administrator in the grade school level system. This comprehensive course is focused broadly on the role of Title IX Administrators, Title IX compliance, investigations, athletics equity, and 504 disability compliance.

Attendees will follow a comprehensive curriculum on how to do the job and do it well. This three-day certification course will be intense, practical, and full of case studies and opportunities to apply the skills imparted in the training. You will not only spend three 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.

Further Learning from  The ATIXA Playbook: Gender Discrimination

ATIXA offers excerpts of  The ATIXA Playbook: Best Practices for the Post-Regulatory Era, an indispensable resource tool for those who are charged with making the right decisions on sexual misconduct allegations on college and university campuses. 

Discriminatory or harassing actions can take many forms, including physical, verbal, written, and/or digital form, and could include conduct that is threatening, harmful, intimidating, or humiliating. It is important to recognize that not all conduct that is unwelcome or unpleasant will rise to the level of gender-based harassment.

Resource Spotlight

The ATIXA Leadership Team and Advisory Board have released a new position statement this week,  Consideration of Pattern Evidence in Campus Sexual Misconduct Allegations

ATIXA issues this position statement to provide guidance to the field on the consideration of pattern evidence in sexual misconduct investigations and resolutions. Contradictory research, recent court opinions, and common questions regarding the existence and admission of pattern evidence suggest a need for clearer guidance.

We encourage you to review this statement in its entirety, and we are hopeful it will be helpful in your professional practice.
