Title IX Advisor for Nebraska High School Students

Title IX, a federal civil rights law, promises to protect your child from sexual harassment and assault while they're in school. This law has done so since 1972, when the government enacted it as part of the Education Amendment. Under Title IX, all federally-funded schools must investigate all allegations of sexual assault or risk their funding.

Title IX has helped many victims of sexual assault find swift justice. Title IX has also provided an incentive for schools to rush their investigations. Sometimes, schools create aggressive timelines for hearings and mete out undue punishment. Just because your school must investigate all Title IX allegations does not mean they have the resources to do so properly.

If your Nebraska high school student faces unwarranted accusations of sexual assault, it is vital to be proactive. Your student's future may depend upon your immediate action.

Sexual Assault in Nebraska: Is Your High Schooler in Jeopardy?

Are you wondering whether sexual misconduct really happens at your high school? After all, Title IX is a term often associated with splashy news stories - not events that happen close to home. Unfortunately, a brief perusal of local media indicates that sexual misconduct can happen anywhere.

In one Omaha public school, a teacher faced charges for sexual abuse of a young student. It isn't always the teachers who may have alleged responsibility in these devastating incidents. According to the same local newspaper, in another western Nebraska high school, a student allegedly attempted sexual assault on one of his teachers.

Anyone can face accusations of sexual assault. This includes your high school student. This means that anyone can face the repercussions of sexual misconduct, which can be severe. If your student faces unwarranted charges of sexual misconduct, they might experience unfair punishment - which could tarnish their reputation, mar their high school experience, and even have long-lasting repercussions on their future.

If your child stands accused of sexual misconduct, you need to reach out to an experienced advisor immediately.

Your Nebraska High School's Code of Conduct

The United States Office for Civil Rights has published guidelines for investigation and punitive measures regarding sexual misconduct. However, the Office allows for the fact that every state has its own challenges and environments. This means that every state (and every school district) has its own method for investigating Title IX cases.

Your school must detail the specific actions investigable under Title IX, as well as the specific grievance procedures you will undergo during student discipline proceedings. You can likely find this information in your school's code of conduct or student handbook.

There are some common threads, state to state, school district to school district. For example, according to this Nebraska school's code of conduct, any sexual behavior that a person finds unwelcome may be sexual misconduct. These actions may include stalking, harassment, improper touching, exposure, and even rape.

The Nebraska Student Discipline Act lays out general recommendations for student discipline procedures. Your school's handbook will have a more concrete policy. This public school district's code of conduct suggests that the following consequences may follow an allegation of sexual misconduct:

• Lowered grades or failed courses

• Title IX allegations on your student's permanent record (even if unwarranted)

• Expulsion from your Nebraska high school

• Referral to alternative education

• A mandatory behavioral contract

• Mandatory in-school or out-of-school counseling

• An in-school or out-of-school suspension

• Reduction of privileges, such as a parking spot

• Referral to external law enforcement

As you can see, the stakes are very high. Making sure that you are proactive in protecting your student's rights during a Title IX investigation is paramount.

How an Attorney-Advisor Can Help You Keep Your School Accountable

One of the best things you can do for your child is to hire an experienced, hard-working Title IX and code of conduct advisor as early in your case as is possible. Since your Nebraska high school has an incentive to pursue rushed timelines in your case, it can be easy for your school to steamroll your student's rights.

Under Title IX, your child has a right to specific notifications and expectations during a fair investigation. These include:

• A Presumption of Innocence: Your school must give your child a written notification of their presumed innocence at the beginning of the investigation.

• The Full Investigative Report: After the Title IX investigation is complete, your school must issue your child a copy of the report.

• The Right to Submit Questions: After your child has had a chance to review the investigative report as well as all evidence and statements, your child has the right to submit written questions to all witnesses and parties. 

If your child does not receive these considerations, your school may have infringed upon your student's rights. A seasoned Title IX advisor can ensure that your student receives fair treatment. Your Title IX advisor may also be able to help you analyze evidence, interpret investigative results, prepare for a hearing, and appeal undue consequences.

Your child shouldn't have to suffer unwarranted punishments that might make their future more difficult than it needs to be. Instead, consult a Title IX advisor as early as you can. You might be able to protect your student's rights - and your student's future.

It is critical to make certain the Title IX investigation at your child's Nebraska 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.
