Get Updates on the Title IX Rulemaking Process

On September 22, Betsy DeVos rescinded Obama-era guidance and announced that the Department of Education would be issuing binding regulations on Title IX. In order to create these regulations, the Department must go through a process known as “notice and comment,” which allows members of the public to voice their opinions on the Department’s proposed rules. The Department of Education has announced that notice and comment will begin in March.

We highly encourage students, their families, and allies to participate in notice and comment. If you are interested in receiving updates when notice and comment begins, please sign up for updates. Know Your IX will provide you with a toolkit to help you navigate the process of writing a comment.
