ATSA's 2022 document, "Title IX Public Hearing Comments on 2022 Title IX Rule Changes," presents a thought-provoking critique and suggestions for the proposed Title IX rules in educational settings. ATSA supports a broad definition of sexual harassment, including 'hostile environment harassment', advocating for a standard that acknowledges a range of behaviors impacting equal access to education. The document highlights the significance of early intervention and individualized, risk-based interventions for students engaged in sexual harassment.
ATSA emphasizes the need for equitable services for all parties, including victims, perpetrators, and those concerned about their behaviors. This includes specialized training and resources to meet diverse needs. The document also supports individualized supportive measures tailored to each situation, advocating for measures that not only restore educational access but also prevent future misconduct.
ATSA's input on the Title IX rule changes reflects a comprehensive approach, balancing the needs for victim support with interventions for those exhibiting problematic behaviors. It underscores the importance of informed policy-making and proactive measures in educational institutions to address sexual harassment and assault effectively.
