The new Title IX regulations allow for informal resolution in sexual misconduct matters and also require training for Informal Resolution Facilitators. This virtual training is not a webinar, but instead a “live” and interactive virtual experience. It will include the required training on the definition of sexual harassment, the scope of a school district’s education program or activity, how to conduct an informal resolution process and the different types of informal resolutions that may be considered, and how to fulfill the role and serve impartially, including avoiding prejudgment to the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, or bias. The training will also discuss the Title IX process under the new regulations and the facilitator’s role in that process. Participants will work through case studies to put the concepts learned into practice and also receive compliance aids. Space is limited to foster an interactive learning environment. Attendees will receive training that complies with the requirements contained in the new Title IX Rules for investigators.
