The U.S. Department of Education plans to issue the final Title IX regulations by March 2024, almost a year after the original May 2023 goal.
The regulations have been delayed twice due to the high volume and range of comments for and against the controversial nature of the rules. Conservative policymakers have repeatedly called for the administration to slow or even stop implementation. More liberal lawmakers and organizations have advocated for the regulations to be released as soon as possible, stating delays are costing marginalized students their civil rights.
The controversies include protections for LGBTQ+ individuals and a framework for how schools should approach the inclusion of transgender students on athletic teams aligning with their gender identities.
The new regulations will be the third shift in school Title IX policies over the course of three administrations.
