This presentation introduces juvenile prosecutors to Title IX of the 1972 Education Act and explains the ways in which the work of juvenile prosecutors is likely to be impacted by Title IX. Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination—interpreted to include sexual assault and dating/domestic violence—in educational communities. Participants will learn about schools’ obligation to investigate allegations of sexual assault and dating violence occurring in K-12 schools, when that requirement is triggered, and the specific investigative and adjudicative procedures schools must follow. The presentation will also explore Title IX issues that are specific to working with minors, including mandatory reporting laws, confidentiality and student privacy, the role of school resource officers, and age-based consent issues.
