Department of Education Proposes New Title IX Regulations
Educational institutions (“recipient” or “recipient institutions”) have been waiting for the Department of Education to issue formal Title IX regulations after it issued interim guidance in September 2017. This interim guidance rescinded previous Obama-era guidance that called for strict enforcement of Title IX and indicated that new formal guidance would be forthcoming. These new proposed regulations were issued by the Department of Education on November 16, 2018 and, if enacted, will require significant changes to the Title IX policies and procedures of educational institutions.
Several significant changes proposed in the new regulations include the following:
The public has 60 days after the proposed regulations are published in the Federal Register to submit comments before any final regulations go into effect. The final regulations, however, will likely be substantially similar to the proposed regulations and educational institutions would be wise to review their Title IX policies and practices for compliance.
If you have questions about Title IX and possible upcoming changes or how best to implement Title IX on your campus, please contact the authors or your Dinsmore attorney.
