The new 2020 OCR regulations state the following:

  • The Title IX Rule requires schools’ Title IX Personnel to be unbiased and free from conflicts of interest.
  • Title IX personnel include the Title IX Coordinator, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution.

Schools must ensure that Title IX personnel receive training as follows:

  • On Title IX’s definition of “sexual harassment,”
  • On the scope of the school’s education program or activity,
  • On how to conduct an investigation and grievance process,
  • On how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue,
  • On how to avoid conflicts of interest and bias,
  • Decision-makers must receive training on any technology to be used at a live hearing, and on issues of relevance of questions and evidence, including when questions and evidence about a complainant’s sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant,
  • Investigators must receive training on issues of relevance to create an investigative report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence.

All materials used to train Title IX personnel:

  • Must not rely on sex stereotypes,
  • Must promote impartial investigations and adjudications of formal complaints of sexual harassment,
  • Must be maintained by the school for at least 7 years,
  • Must be publicly available on the school’s website.
