Title IX Training Materials
Title IX Sexual Harassment Training 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681- 1688; 34 C.F.R. §§ 106.30, .45(b); FFH(LEGAL) is only required for the Title IX coordinator, any individual designated as an investigator or decision-maker in a formal complaint process under Title IX, and any person designated to facilitate an informal resolution process.
Title IX regulations require Title IX coordinators, as well as those involved in the processing of Title IX complaints, to receive training on the definition of sexual harassment in 34 C.F.R. § 106.30, the scope of the district’s education program or activity, how to conduct an investigation and grievance process including hearings, appeals, and informal resolution processes, as applicable, and how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias. In accordance with Title IX regulations, decision-makers must receive training on any technology to be used at a live hearing, if provided, and on issues of relevance of questions and evidence, including when questions and evidence about the complainant’s sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant, and investigators must receive training on issues of relevance to create a fair investigative report.
