K12 Title IX Website Assessment
Title IX in K12 Schools
Preventing and addressing sexual and gender-based harassment and sexual assault in school communities is a critical responsibility and legal requirement for K12 school districts.
Under Title IX law, K12 districts must ensure that critical information about their Title IX program is readily available and accessible to students, families, and staff on their district website. However, in a study by ETR's K12T9 Initiative, only 28 of the 100 randomly sampled school district websites across the nation met federal legal standards around the online provision of their Title IX program information.
How to Assess Your District's Website Compliance with Title IX
The bottom line is that your K12 school district's website must be in compliance with Title IX law and regulation. You may also be wondering whether your district's website is doing all it can to inform your school community and empower it to prevent and address sexual and gender-based harassment and sexual assault.
Partner with ETR's K12T9 Initiative team to conduct a comprehensive assessment of your K12 district's website. Our collaborative and supportive process assesses both the availability and accessibility of Title IX program information on your district's website. ETR's team of content experts and web developers makes specific recommendations for improvements needed to (1) comply with federal Title IX regulations, and (2) maximize the impact of your online prevention and education components of your Title IX program.
Improving the Impact of Your Title IX Program
Prominently displaying Title IX program information on a district's website provides a critical path for students, families, and staff to learn about and exercise their rights under Title IX law and district policies. This allows for a better understanding of Title IX reporting requirements, a clear presentation of district investigation and remediation policies and procedures, and easy access to school and community-based support services for sexual harassment prevention and reporting of Title IX violations. Your district's Title IX website also serves as an accessible location to provide the legal compliance standards required under Title IX regulations.
