What should I do if my child is facing a Title IX case at their high school in Alaska? VIDEO

If your child is facing a Title IX at their high school in Alaska, you need to take the necessary precautions before you engage in any capacity with the school. Although the Title IX Final Rule allows for a more structured and arguably equitable process, it will still require a dedicated approach for an accused student to be found not responsible. The school is not your friend. You have to take the necessary precautions as such.

The Title IX Final Rule will also allow for the case to be addressed and adjudicated either through an investigation model or a live hearing model. You need to be familiar with the school's policies in that regard as to how the case would be addressed and adjudicated. Every step through the process needs to be calculated because so much is at stake. An experienced attorney advisor will be your child's best ally if they're facing a Title IX case at their high school in Alaska. They should be involved as early as possible in the process.

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