Dual Enrollment: When K-12 and Higher Education Programs, Students, and Staff Combine

Dual enrollment programs can pose a challenge to Title IX compliance as they involve a mix of K-12 and higher education students and staff. These programs can operate in various configurations, including on-site in a K-12 school, at a college or university, or in a hybrid combination. To ensure Title IX compliance across both spheres, school, district, and higher education partners must coordinate and cooperate effectively.

This seminar addresses the common issues and frequently asked questions regarding dual enrollment situations, including assessing jurisdiction over the report or complaint, navigating each entity’s Title IX grievance process, collaborative investigations, implementing memoranda of understanding/cooperative agreements, and promoting effective relationships between multiple education entities. Additionally, the seminar will provide tips and strategies to stop, prevent, and remedy sex- and gender-based harassment that may arise in these unique education settings.
