You are not imagining things if it feels like just yesterday that the administration completely overhauled the Title IX Rules, establishing new requirements and expectations for schools in combatting sex-based discrimination.
In 2020, re-written Title IX regulations took effect with numerous mandates including specific training requirements and a whole set of prescriptive processes schools must follow in implementing thier non-discrimination policies and procedures.
After the most recent presidential election, the Biden administration announced it would, again, be re-writting the rules and in 2022, these proposed rules were published via an NPMR (Notice of Proposed Rulemaking). Late last year, the Department of Education promised Final Rules in May of 2023.
What does that mean for you? Adhere to current rules, but be prepared for changes in the coming months.
First, current rules must be followed (the old "new" rules from 2020). These rules remain in full force and effect until the new, "new" rules become effective. While we expect from recent announcements that these new rules will be published in final form in May, we don't know what the effective dates will be for various provisions until they are released. This means you must continue to meet mandated training requirements, adhere to the various due process protections baked into the current rules, including those requiring live hearings and cross-examination, in the postsecondary setting.
