Think a K-12 for the Rule for one clear, upfront price is a pipe dream? As the source SpecialEdConnection, AASA, the National School Attorneys Association, and AASPA have all relied on for their Title IX first takes, I say it's not! educationcivilrights.com/title-ix-quick…

All my education was in public schools—from kinder through law school. All my kids’ education has been, too. Texans must wake up to the manipulative efforts of Abbott and other politicians to dismantle the public school system we love before it’s too late. texastribune.org/2024/05/15/tex…

I wonder if Taylor Swift knows that her name will forever be tied with after U.S. Department of Education issued its new rule on the same day as .... Seems fitting for someone who is a warrior for civil rights herself 🤍 youtube.com/watch?v=64Ng5g…

Today, while speaking at the conference, I thought of another reason to have ONE CIVIL RIGHTS GRIEVANCE POLICY in K-12 under the 2024 Rule: Ever counted the # of appeal processes in Board policy? The rules require consistency in appeals for all civil rights cases.

There is so much doom and gloom out there about the new Title IX rules, but particularly for K-12 schools the rule can make life easier in so many ways, especially if you do it right. Here are some initial thoughts from yours truly in Education Week: edweek.org/policy-politic…

Just because the new rule lets schools designate 'confidential employees' *does not* mean schools should. Repercussions will go far beyond . It's incredibly important to get implementation advice from those who intimately know K12, like this from AASA!

Big win for our K-12 schools coalition on the new rules: The final regulations clarify that the T9 team is not required to consult with a student’s full IEP or Section 504 team; consulting with 'one or more members' can be enough. Read more here: educationcivilrights.com/new-title-ix-r…

The new rule codifies protections for students, parents, and employees, including with respect to use of intimate facilities like bathrooms and locker rooms. This provision will likely be quickly challenged in the courts. Read more here: educationcivilrights.com/new-title-ix-r…
