On May 6, the U.S. Department of Education released the long-anticipated Title IX regulations. For the first time ever, the department’s Title IX regulations define sexual harassment, including sexual assault, as unlawful sex discrimination. It also changes how districts can investigate Title IX claims and the adjudication process.

Districts have to begin implementing the Title IX regulations in August. In order to assist district leaders and principals, NASSP and AASA have lined up a great team of K–12 legal experts from the law firm of Hogan Lovells who will explain the regulations, describe what Title IX practices and policies must change under the new regulations, and outline what steps school leaders should take to prepare for the implementation of these regulations. In addition, attendees will hear about how these regulations impact the policy discussions on Capitol Hill as well as litigation to stop the regulations from going into effect.
