Title IX Compliance Essentials for K-12 Education

Build Collaborative Partnerships with Law Enforcement to Navigate Joint and Independent Investigations

Coordination and cooperation between school districts, school resource officers, and local law enforcement agencies are crucial in K-12 Title IX work to address overlapping obligations for incident response without getting in each other’s way. This seminar explores best practices and common challenges. It also addresses frequently asked questions regarding effective coordination between schools and law enforcement agencies to help both entities navigate their legal and school safety responsibilities.

ATIXA’s expert faculty members will offer recommendations for information sharing, coordination, and timing of the criminal and Title IX investigations and processes. The seminar will also provide strategies for building effective partnerships, developing memoranda of understanding (MOUs), and opportunities for participants to work through common scenarios in case studies such as court protective orders, concurrent investigations, and the ins and outs of information sharing.
