Training Overview

Are your Title IX policies updated for 2022-23? Adapt to new transgender students and investigation requirements.

The Department of Education plans to issue a proposed rule defining how Title IX covers transgender students in April. The draft text of the regulation includes this key sentence, according to the people familiar with it: “Discrimination on the basis of sex includes discrimination on the basis of sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics (including intersex traits), pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity.”

For the third time in three administrations, the regulations will also likely rewrite complex rules for K-12 schools to adjudicate sexual harassment and assault allegations. The Trump administration’s version included more due process rights for the accused, and the new version is expected to be friendlier to those leveling the accusations.

As schools grapple with high suicide rates of LGBTQ youth, the participation of transgender athletes in school sports, and 54 pending cases of transgender discrimination, you need to ensure your school and district adhere to current law and prepare for the upcoming regulation.
