The Kansas School Board Resource Center hosted an important webinar to inform and prepare school board members for the impacts of the new Title IX regulations to be implemented by August 1st. Max Eden from the American Enterprise Institute will provide background details on the issue and Jonathan Vogel, Managing Attorney of Vogel Law Firm will discuss the legal implications for school board members, especially in states like Kansas with laws that require separate facilities for boys and girls and run counter to the new Title IX rules.
