Legal Legislative Alert!
On Friday, May 13, 2016, the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) released an announcement about the joint guidance on transgender students by USDE and the Department of Justice. ACSI's Legal Legislative Department is researching just how this might impact our member Christian schools. Read more on the details of the announcement, the immediate impact on ACSI member schools, the impact on Title Funds, and what ACSI member schools should do at this point.
In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has issued a final rule updating the regulations defining and delimiting the exemption for executive, administrative, and professional employees. The Final Rule was announced on May 18, 2016 and will be published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2016. Learn what has and has not changed based on the Final Rule and what this means for ACSI member schools.
If you have questions, please emailt the ACSI Legal Legislative office or call 719.528.6906.
