OCR Enforcement Under the Biden Administration

July 29, 2021

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST

Presented by Jennifer Mauskapf

Course Description:

With a new administration comes new priorities and one office within ED where we can expect to see some significant changes is the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).  This virtual training will review OCR trends, priority areas, and what to expect in terms of enforcement under the Biden Administration.  We will review steps ED recipients can take to prepare for and defend themselves in an OCR investigation. Approximately half of the complaints OCR receives and investigate each year regard allegations of discrimination on the basis of disability.  Additionally, Title IX is one area in which we saw significant change in OCR’s interpretation and enforcement during the past two administrations.  As such, two areas of focus for this session will be what to expect in terms of OCR enforcement of IDEA/Sec. 504 and Title IX under the Biden Administration.
