High School Title IX Advisor - Oklahoma

Is your child facing false accusations of sexual misconduct under Title IX? If your child is in high school, your child may face unwarranted punishment and stark disciplinary actions. The ramifications of an allegation of sexual assault may follow your student throughout their entire professional career, marring the future your family has worked hard to build. Sexual assault is traumatizing for all concerned, but justice for its victims should not result in unfair treatment of the falsely accused. As the parent of a high school child facing a Title IX case, you need to get informed and prepare to protect your child, come what may.

Title IX is part of the Educational Amendments of 1972. The federal government enacted these laws to promise protection for students at publicly-funded schools nationwide. Under Title IX, all instances of sex discrimination and assault are not permissible. Since it's a requirement for all public schools to abide by Title IX, it's a common misconception that all schools can handle Title IX proceedings. This is not the case. Many public K-12 schools do not have the training, resources, or personnel to preside over sexual misconduct investigations and hearings. Your school may rush through your student's case, side with the accuser by default, or otherwise infringe upon your student's rights.

It's time to work with your advisor to make sure that your student is not treated unfairly due to a false allegation of sexual assault.

Oklahoma High Schools and Sexual Assault Cases

Do cases of sexual misconduct really happen in OK high schools? Since Title IX proceedings most often appear with large, splashy news stories about university-level incidents, it can be easy to think that your teenager is safe at your local school.

Unfortunately, a quick perusal of local news stories debunks that line of thinking. USA Today recently reported that a group of Oklahoma high school football players sexually assaulted one of their teammates in a purported hazing ritual. A local news outlet broke the story that an Oklahoma high school student assaulted a female student in a school office. At another small Oklahoma high school, one male student was allegedly harassing several girls on campus.

Nobody wants these cases to be the norm. However, they are part of the reality of high school experiences. You and your family need to prepare yourselves. If your student faces allegations of sexual misconduct, that is serious and potentially actionable. Depending on the particular policies in effect at your Oklahoma high school, your student could be facing unwarranted punishments that could affect their entire future.

Title IX, Grievance Policies, and Disciplinary Procedures

At some schools, a grievance procedure is the process for resolving a Title IX investigation. At other Oklahoma schools, your school will simply adapt existing disciplinary procedures to work towards an expedient resolution.

According to one Oklahoma high school's posted grievance procedures, a Title IX investigation officially begins when a complainant reports an assault to the school's designated Title IX Coordinator. Your school must make this coordinator's contact information available to every member of the school community. Once the accuser files this complaint, the school is only required to issue the accuser a full set of grievance procedures. The school needs to inform or meet with the accused student only much later on in the investigative process.

At another OK high school, the decision as to discipline for the accused potentially rests entirely in the hands of one person. According to their policies, after the complainant files their accusation, “a decision will be made by the Superintendent or his/her designee as to whether non-compliance exists and corrective actions will be taken if needed for compliance.”

Depending on the policies at your school, your student may face a diverse list of potential punishments. Classroom intervention, school-based mediation, expulsion, referral to a different school or even to professional counseling: One Oklahoma school's policies make it clear that consequences will be severe, and that the school will notify the police.

You need to be familiar with your school's policies and Title IX proceedings to protect your student. Working with a successful Title IX advisor may be the best way to keep your student's future safe.

Working with a Skilled Advisor to Hold Your OK School Accountable

When your school notifies you that your student is facing Title IX proceedings, your school will likely give you the option of choosing anyone you would like as your student's representative or advisor. It's likely not a good idea for you to choose anyone your school employs, as they might have an incentive to share personal information of yours with the school.

Selecting your own Title IX advisor can help level the playing field if you feel your Oklahoma high school is stacking the odds against your student. Here are just a few benefits you may experience if you choose to work with a professional Title IX advisor:

  • Experience and Expertise: Your advisor will bring knowledge of Title IX regulations as well as the policies of your school to your case.
  • Preparation for Proceedings: Your advisor may assist with interviewing witnesses, preparing documents, getting ready for a hearing, and more.
  • Confidentiality: Your advisor will keep all private information you disclose to him completely confidential.

Ultimately, your Title IX advisor will help you stay proactive in your student's sexual misconduct case and give you the best chance to protect their future.

It is critical to make certain the Title IX investigation at your child's Oklahoma high school is handled properly and that the accused student's interests and rights are protected from as early as possible during the sexual misconduct investigative process.  One major reason is because even at high schools where a finding of responsibility for sexual misconduct charges is made at a hearing, the investigation will set the stage for what the hearing panel is provided prior to a hearing (and what the hearing panel will in large part rely on at a hearing), and at high schools where the finding of responsibility is made solely through the investigative process, what takes place during the investigation itself will determine whether the accused student is found responsible or not responsible for Title IX charges.

Unfortunately, some parents make the mistake of not taking the necessary precautions as soon as possible when accused of sexual misconduct.  Some people will mistakenly believe that if they "just explain what happened," their school will be fair and impartial and will arrive at the truth.  In a perfect world this may be the case, but in a perfect world, sexual misconduct allegations and Title IX charges would not exist.

Fighting passionately for the future of his clients at schools throughout the nation for many years, Joseph D. Lento knows how important it is to mount the strongest defense because he understands that an accused high school student's academic future is on the line. He does not settle for the easiest outcome, and instead prioritizes his clients' needs and well-being.
