Husch Blackwell Education Attorneys to Present at Missouri School Boards' Association Conference

Speaking Engagement

Aleks Rushing and Demetrius Peterson will be presenting on Friday, October 6, 2017 at The Missouri School Boards' Association Annual Conference. They will address the hot topic of Title IX on the heels of recent guidance issued by the Office for Civil Rights formally withdrawing Obama-era guidance on sexual violence.

Title IX: Internal and OCR Investigations 

In light of heightened awareness, shifting guidance and a rise in investigations, schools must train their staff to effectively investigate and resolve alleged incidents of sex and gender discrimination, sexual harassment and interpersonal violence. This program will go beyond the basics to dig into the practical skills needed to conduct effective internal investigations along with tips for responding to OCR investigations.
