Oregon Department of Education - Oregon achieves - together

Training from ODE on New Title IX Regulations

On May 6, 2020, the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights released new Title IX regulations that detail how schools must respond to sexual harassment and requires new processes to be in place by August 14, 2020. For most Oregon K-12 schools, these regulations represent significant policy and process changes. You can read more about the new regulations on the OCR website, which includes a brief overview chart as well as the full text of the new regulations.

The Oregon Department of Education is committed to helping districts understand these new obligations, including how they intersect with Oregon laws and policies, and to supporting schools in their efforts to make sure all students can access their education free from sexual harassment. We are offering two webinars to aid districts in these efforts, and are hosting each webinar twice. We encourage any who are interested to attend, including superintendents, Title IX Coordinators, HR Directors, principals, school counselors, and community partners.

Sexual Harassment in Oregon K-12 Schools, Part 1: The New Title IX Regulations

Sexual Harassment in Oregon K-12 Schools, Part 2: Preparing People, Policy, and Processes for August 14th

In part two, we’ll outline what schools will need to create and/or revise before the August 14th deadline. We’ll also address some common questions about the regulations, including: how does this intersect with my obligations under Oregon law? How can small districts get creative to come into compliance?
