Recommended Prior Learning: 

Title IX Coordinator Foundations: Sex-Based Harassment for Higher Education or Title IX Compliance Essentials for K-12 Education

Communicate and Collaborate Effectively Between BIT and Title IX Staff

The Title IX regulations mandate an individualized safety or risk analysis before an institution can limit educational access, such as emergency removal. This analysis often can and should take the form of a Violence Risk Assessment (VRA).

This workshop aims to assist practitioners in implementing an evidence-based process that reduces bias, mitigates legal risk exposure, avoids disability discrimination, and ensures consistency in determining (1) if a VRA is necessary, (2) who should conduct the VRA, and (3) what to do after receiving the VRA results report.

Participants will learn how to vet who conducts a VRA, how the VRA varies from other types of assessments, and how to work collaboratively with behavioral intervention, CARE, and threat assessment teams to ensure an efficient and thorough process.

Topics Covered

  • Introduction
  • Emergency Removal
  • Behavioral Intervention Teams Overview
  • Overlap of BIT and Title IX: Referrals and Information Sharing
  • Violence Risk Assessment Overview
  • VRA Results and When They Are Challenged

Key Takeaway

Partnerships between professionals managing Title IX and behavioral interventions are crucial for ensuring the safety and well-being of all.
