BERWYN, Pa., Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The brand new and fully revised ATIXA "One Policy, One Process" (1P1P) model is state-of-the-art and hot-off-the-presses. With versions for colleges/universities and PK-12, 1P1P is designed by leading experts to reflect best practices and industry standards while also ensuring compliance with upcoming 2019 Office for Civil Rights Title IX regulations.

As campuses work diligently to bring processes into compliance with Title IX, some of the more vexing challenges include:
- Cross-constituency complaints (student-on-faculty, faculty-on-staff, etc.);
- Varied processes for resolving allegations involving students, faculty, staff, unionized employees, etc.;
- Different processes for discrimination allegations (race, disability, age, etc.) than those used to address Title IX-related allegations;
- Balancing Title VII and Title IX by incorporating equity standards into employee-on-employee allegations;
- Reconciling allegations that include both Title IX-covered behaviors and those standing outside Title IX.
- Getting up to speed on ALL OF THE CHANGES OCR will require in 2019!
Given the complexity of addressing these challenges separately — and many others inherent in good policy — many schools and campuses are realizing that patched policies and procedures just aren't going to cut it going forward. New Regs require a clean-sheet approach. ATIXA has revisited everything within the previous 1P1P model to ensure that the new models capture all the policy and procedural elements you will need, and reflect the emerging changes in case law as well.
The One Policy, One Process Approach
ATIXA has pioneered the One Policy, One Process Model now in use at hundreds of schools and colleges. If you were unsure whether it is time to unify policies and procedures, OCR has made it clear in the new Regs that it expects consistency across processes.
This model permits all discrimination complaints (age, race, sex, gender, nationality, etc.) to be resolved using one institution-wide policy, and one resolution process, applied to all alleged discrimination involving faculty, students and staff.
This process can sit outside existing processes, or can be integrated into existing human resource, affirmative action, and student conduct models. It harnesses the existing resources of many departments to minimize the need for added staff and expense.
1P1P is not only Title IX compliant, it serves the best practices of the civil rights approach with an emphasis on meaningful remedies, social justice, victim empowerment and advocacy, comprehensive investigation, procedural fairness to all parties, and prompt resolution of everything from bias incidents to stalking, sexual violence and intimate partner violence.
It is easily customized, with clearly identified fields for you to include your campus-specific or district-specific information.
