With Title IX guidance and regulations in flux, this session briefly explores developing case law around the requirement that educational institutions receive actual notice of sexual misconduct through an “appropriate person” before liability attaches under Title IX. While often employed by local law enforcement, school resource officers often serve as agents for K-12 school districts to receive reports of sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and other forms of gender-based harassment and abuse. Properly training school resource officers to respond to reports under Title IX will improve K-12 grievance procedures addressing sexual harassment, misconduct and violence to avoid liability and, most importantly, to ensure students feel safe and supported within their educational environments.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Describe the obligations imposed on K-12 school districts under Title IX.
  • Recognize the types of offenses covered under Title IX and how to identify those offenses in K-12 settings.
  • Explain the role of School Resource Officers in responding under to offenses covered under Title IX.
