Title IX/Sexual Misconduct at Educational Facilities



Credit Hours:


Credit Type:


Sexual assault and sexual misconduct are an ongoing and serious problem at schools across the country. According to the National Institute of Justice, about 1 in 5 women and 6% of men are victims of completed or attempted sexual assault while in college. There are more than 3,000 reports of forcible sex offences reported on college campuses every year. The U.S. Department of Education and its Office for Civil Rights regard these crimes as a serious violation Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, commonly referred to as “Title IX,” which was designed to prevent sexual discrimination in education. Since 1972 a number of additional, related laws have been passed with the goal of preventing and addressing sexual misconduct on school campuses, including most recently the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act. Failure to comply with these laws is also considered a violation of Title IX. These laws and regulations are important for protecting students, but they have created new and sometimes confusing obligations for schools and their employees. This course will help employees understand Title IX and its companion laws regarding sexual misconduct in education, and their role in helping to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct. This course is designed for all employees at educational institutions that fall under the provisions of Title IX, with particular focus on those designated Responsible Employees. It is intended to assist the employer in fulfilling the training requirements for Responsible Employees imposed under Title IX and the Cleary Act.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
