Host a K-12 Training Event
Interested in bringing one of ATIXA’s expert consultants to your district but only have a few staff who need training? Or perhaps you have been brainstorming ways other districts in your area can pool their resources for training and professional development? Consider hosting a training event in your district! Our training events provide the opportunity for a broader number of institutions and attendees to receive valuable training. In exchange for hosting and managing on-site logistical coordination, the host campus can send up to 10 attendees to the training at no charge.

ATIXA is currently collecting Requests for Proposals for district-host sites for the coming year. We provide the consultant, materials, comprehensive instructions on the host process and requirements, and a member of our client relations team to answer any questions and connect with you throughout the RFP, planning, and execution process. You provide the location and resources for a great event!

For more information about hosting a training event, please click here for an overview of host site expectations and requirements or email events@atixa.org. To be considered as a host, click here to complete an  RFP.

Find Your Title IX Coordinators with AAUW’s Interactive Tool
All K-12 schools and postsecondary institutions that receive federal funds must designate at least one employee to coordinate their efforts to comply with and carry out their responsibilities under Title IX. These Title IX coordinators ensure that all people affected by sex discrimination in schools – students, parents, and employees – are aware of their legal rights.

Sexual Violence Isn’t Just a College Problem. It Happens in K-12 Schools, Too.
Sexual assault has become a dominant topic on the nation’s college campuses in recent years, as student activists have spoken out and the Obama administration has pushed for institutional change. But it has largely remained a hidden issue in elementary, middle and high schools, where parents assume their children are supervised and safe.
