The Department of Education announced it will issue the Title IX notice of proposed rulemaking by April 2022, a month earlier than the May 2022 date listed in last spring’s Unified Agenda.

The new timeline for releasing the proposed Title IX rules was included in the federal government’s biannual regulatory agenda. The new target date is not binding but is the Department of Education’s best estimate of when it plans an release the Title IX proposal for public comment.

The Department of Education’s civil rights chief said in a statement that the new date “reflects the Department’s commitment to work as speedily as possible toward appropriate and effective regulation in recognition of the importance of ensuring equal access to education for all students and addressing the threat to equal access posed by all forms of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment.”
