LCW Title IX Compliance Training Program

After a decade of changing guidance, the U.S. Department of Education issued new Title IX regulations in May 2020.  Districts have until August 14, 2020 to comply with and train employees on these new regulations.  If this seems like a daunting task, don’t fret!  LCW has you covered.  We are offering compliance training, guidance on completing required forms, a Q&A session, and sample forms to ensure your District is compliant.

Our experience assisting educational institutions with Title IX matters includes the following:

  • Policies and Procedures: We assist our clients in creating and updating their anti-harassment, discrimination and disciplinary, policies, including the publication and distribution. We also assist our clients in implementation operating procedures.
  • Compliance: We have assisted our clients in auditing their policies and procedures to ensure compliance with changes in the law. We also work with and address issues pertaining to Title IX Coordinators, complaint and investigation procedures, third party complaints, and privacy concerns.
  • Grievance Procedures: We help clients create written grievance procedures, including reporting policies and protocols.
  • Investigations: We assist clients in investigations of alleged Title IX violations, including fact-finding.
  • Discipline: We assist clients with disciplinary procedures, and in implementing discipline against employees and students.
  • OCR: We assist clients in addressing complaints and inquiries from the Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights.
  • Litigation: We are statewide experts in the defense of actions brought by students alleging school related violations, including harassment and discrimination and have a robust writ practice.
  • Training: As a leading provider of client education, we regularly provide Title IX training, for individual institutions through our customized training program as well as through group webinars and seminars.
