Clery Act and Title IX Intersections in Partnership with The Clery Center

Thursday, October 31, 2024 | 8:30am-4:30pm ET

Participants will:

  • Understand the foundational concepts of the Clery Act
  • Identify and internalize intersections between the Clery Act and Title IX requirements for response to and disciplinary procedures for dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking
  • Apply the understanding of federal requirements to the development of institutional policy and annual security report policy statements

The Clery Act and Title IX have distinct influence over campus safety policies and procedures, particularly for instances of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking (DVSAS). However, it can be difficult to recognize how these two laws work together in this specific area when many do not have a foundational understanding of the Clery Act itself. Campuses often struggle to create policies that are clear and succinct for students and employees to interpret while still being comprehensive and addressing all federal and state requirements. As a result, campus community members might feel confused or lost as to how to proceed when they or someone they know is a victim of one of these crimes.

This Post-Conference offering provides a foundational overview of the basic requirements of the Clery Act, including the relationship between Clery-required policy statements and the underlying policies that must exist to support them. It also explores the intersections of the Clery Act with Title IX for DVSAS. Presenters will provide a high-level overview of current Title IX Regulations and review the Clery Act requirements for response and disciplinary procedures for student and employee cases of DVSAS. Participants will skill-build around creating policies and procedures that fully capture the requirements of both laws and developing policy statements in annual security reports that accurately and fully summarize all policies and procedures that address DVSAS.

Attend this training if you are a campus administrator directly or adjacently involved in the creation or implementation of policy(ies) addressing dating and domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

This course does not offer preferred pricing for ATIXA Members, and Super Member/K-12 PDP training inclusions cannot be used.

Intersections with ADA, Section 504, and IDEA for K-12 Education

Thursday, October 31, 2024 | 8:30am-4:30pm ET

This course is designed to comprehensively introduce the interaction and intersection between disability laws and Title IX compliance and processes. It is aimed at K-12 Title IX Coordinators, disability/access administrators, and other professionals who need to understand the essential disability laws that relate to Title IX regarding student discipline, accommodations, and adjustments.

The course covers the elements required for a well-developed accommodations process and the necessary grievance procedures. It then takes a deep dive into the unique and multi-faceted aspects of how Title IX processes, such as supportive measures, emergency removals, determinations, and sanctioning, may need to interface for students with disabilities.

Prevention, Program Assessment, & Partnerships

Thursday & Friday, October 31-November 1, 2024 | 8:30am-4:30pm ET Both Days

This research-based, practitioner-informed course is focused on institution-wide compliance efforts, including prevention education and programming, leveraging partnerships, and program assessment.

Title IX work often focuses on response, but effective prevention means fewer incidents. It is essential to understand what prevention entails, how it operates, and how it can be optimized to reduce misconduct. ATIXA’s experienced faculty members will guide participants through multiple applied learning exercises related to prevention program planning and evaluation. Additionally, they will address common concerns that emerge in response to disclosures and incidents, known as Secondary Prevention.

Lastly, faculty will present best practices for holistic program assessment, including strategies for implementation and leveraging the assessment data to advocate for policy changes and innovative prevention initiatives.

Title IX Decision-Making for K-12 Education

Friday, November 1, 2024 | 8:30am-4:30pm ET

Using a case study fact pattern only offered in this ATIXA training, this course helps K-12 practitioners serving in decision-making roles to understand the scope of their position, apply policies with analytical precision, and check biases to ensure that determinations in Title IX complaints are reliably based on evidence, and will stand up to appeal and review by the courts.

ATIXA’s expert faculty members teach decision-making skills that are sound, supportable, and more difficult to challenge in court by closely tracking policy, correctly applying the standard of proof, following fair procedures, producing cogent rationales, and perceptively assessing credibility.

This course is particularly beneficial for investigators also serving as decision-makers, single or panel decision-makers, appeal decision-makers, and administrators who oversee them. Additionally, this course supports individuals acting as decision-makers in expulsion hearings.
