Title IX Compliance Essentials for K-12 Education

Evaluate Your Policies on Disability Accommodations Under Section 504 and the ADA

This course is designed to comprehensively introduce the interaction and intersection between disability laws and Title IX compliance and processes. It is aimed at K-12 Title IX Coordinators, disability/access administrators, and other professionals who need to understand the essential disability laws that relate to Title IX regarding student discipline, accommodations, and adjustments.

The course covers the elements required for a well-developed accommodations process and the necessary grievance procedures. It then takes a deep dive into the unique and multi-faceted aspects of how Title IX processes, such as supportive measures, emergency removals, determinations, and sanctioning, may need to interface for students with disabilities.

Finally, the course briefly touches on pregnancy-related accommodations and adjustments and service and emotional support animals.
