The U.S. Department of Education’s Proposed Rule to modify/amend the federal Title IX regulations is currently subject to a public comment opportunity for school districts and other interested parties to submit feedback to influence the final version of the regulations. The deadline for submitting comments on the Proposed Rule is September 12, 2022.

The WASB has prepared a general summary of the amendments found in the Proposed Rule, with brief commentary, that is intended to help Title IX Coordinators and other school district leaders understand the scope of the Proposed Rule and determine whether their school district wishes to submit any comments for purposes of their local advocacy. The WASB has attempted to identify the proposals that are likely to be of greatest interest to most school districts, however, the overview highlights only some of changes that are included in the Proposed Rule.

School districts may submit comments via the “Federal eRulemaking Portal” at http://www.regulations.gov.  Any submissions should include the docket ID (ED–2021–OCR–0166) at the top.  The Department of Education prefers for comments to be uploaded as a Microsoft Word file.

More information about the new 2022 proposed (i.e., draft) changes to the Title IX regulations can be found at the following links:
