Title IX Compliance Essentials for K-12 Education

Culturally Competent Approaches to Non-Adversarial Conflict Resolution

This foundational course for K-12 schools and districts aims to familiarize participants with ATIXA’s Informal Resolution Framework and the crucial elements to consider when deciding if and how to offer informal resolution during the Title IX grievance process. It covers various topics, including the structural and policy choices that schools and districts must make and how each school’s culture affects those decisions.

Rather than adopting a particular alternative dispute resolution model (facilitated dialogue, restorative practices, mediation, etc.), ATIXA’s experts will provide various options suited to Title IX complaints to facilitate durable, fair, and equitable resolution.

ATIXA’s expert faculty members will also guide participants through two case studies to practice informal resolution.

  • Informal Resolution & Title IX
  • ATIXA’s Informal Resolution Framework
  • Informal Resolution Application Within and Outside of the Regulations
  • Determining Availability and Appropriateness
