On August 14, 2020, the regulations governing Title IX’s newly announced definition of “sexual harassment” came into full effect, dramatically changing the duties for K-12 schools in responding to allegations of sexual harassment, either between students, or employees.

To support its members VSBIT is offering a full-day virtual training Friday October 2, 2020 led by panel counsel Heather Lynn, Esq. and Pietro Lynn, Esq. - Topics covered will include Title IX’s definition of “sexual harassment,” Title IX Coordinator responsibilities, and a step by step explanation of Title IX’s new “Grievance Process.”

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Title IX Coordinators, Title IX Investigators (which, by regulation, can NOT be the same person as the Title IX Coordinator), anyone who may serve as Title IX Decision-Makers.
