What You Should Know about Title IX
If your school receives funds from the United States Department of Education, then it is required to adhere to the Title IX guidelines outlined in the Education Amendments Act, which creates protections to keep campuses free of sexual discrimination. This law allows students to take the initiative and call for a Title IX investigation without faculty approval.
If you are under investigation for Title IX, you have the following rights:
- The right to have your case heard according to regular procedure
- The right to receive notice of the charges
- The right to hear a description of the evidence
- The right to present your side of the story during an impartial hearing
While many schools are required to adhere to Title IX guidelines, they do have the right to set their own rules for details that were not specified in the Education Amendments Act. You and your attorney will need to grow familiar with your school’s specific guidelines in order to prepare an effective defense.
