Explore the Decision-maker role and learn effective practices in K-12 environments.

K-12 Title IX Decision-Maker is a one-day course focused on helping K-12 Decision-makers understand the scope of their expanded role, apply policy with analytical precision, recognize and overcome bias that may impact their decision-making, and to be sure that their determination is reliably based on the evidence. This training is designed to shore up decision-making skills so that decisions are sound, supportable, and more difficult to challenge in court. Plus, participants will explore many of the new regulatory requirements to ensure their formal resolution process is compliant. This course is appropriate for single or panel Decision-makers, appeal Decision-makers, as well as administrators who oversee Decision-makers and is designed to meet the needs of the various decision-making structures operating within schools and districts.

Training is required by the 2020 Title IX regulations and this one-day ATIXA course satisfies the training requirement under the regulations. The training allows participants to substantively explore application of policies on sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and/or stalking using a case study not offered in any other ATIXA training.
