Anticipated Release Date for Title IX Final Rule

by Taylor Garner

In July of 2022, the U.S. Department of Education (“Department”) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) to amend its regulations implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The Department received over 240,000 public comments on the proposed Title IX rules. At this time, the Department is considering and reviewing the comments prior to releasing the final rules. The Department is also in the process of reviewing comments on the proposed Athletic rules released in April 2023.

Leasor Crass, P.C. has carefully monitored the July 2022 NPRM, Athletics NPRM, submitted comments, and communications issued by the Department. Last week, the Department released a blog post stating that the anticipated release date for both the Title IX and Athletic regulations is October 2023. Leasor Crass, P.C. understands the challenges that this mid-year change in policies and procedures may bring. We are prepared to train and assist school districts with the implementation of the final rules once they are released by the Department in October.  In the meantime, the firm stands ready to train school personnel and discuss the anticipated changes, should your district desire to do so.
