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

If your child is facing a Title IX case at their high school in Vermont, you need to take the necessary precautions before you engage with the school in any capacity, too much is at stake. You need to understand that although the Title IX Final Rule allows for a more structured and an arguably more equitable process than under previous guidance, you cannot assume it will be a fair process. It will take a dedicated effort for an accused student to be found not responsible.

The Title IX Final Rule will allow a high school to address an adjudicated case, either through an investigation or a live hearing model. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages and needs to be responded to accordingly. You need to understand the school's policies. Over the course of the case, you need to mount the strongest possible defense. Each step needs to be calculated. It is a high-stakes and an involved process.

Having an experienced attorney advisor, helping your son or daughter through the process when they're facing a Title IX case at their high school in Vermont, will allow for the best prospect of success. They should be involved as early as possible in the process. They'll be able to help work towards trying to ensure a fair process and a favorable outcome.
