ATIXA Grant Transforms the School and College Organization for Prevention Educators into Open Resource for Title IX and Campus Save Act Education

MALVERN, Pa., Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- We are pleased to announce an exciting new chapter for both the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA) and the School and College Organization for Prevention Educators (SCOPE).

ATIXA has provided a grant to transform SCOPE's mission from a general prevention-focused membership association to an open resource addressing the national dialogue on how best to educate and train to prevent sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking and relationship/intimate partner violence in schools and colleges. 

Effective today, SCOPE's focus has been narrowed to create a powerful, targeted and synergistic sexual violence and interpersonal violence training and prevention resource.  Membership is no longer necessary.  SCOPE's resources are now available to all. 

ATIXA is the nation's pre-eminent resource for compliance with Title IX, providing training and policies pertaining to campus sexual violence, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence and stalking.  SCOPE has served as a key clearinghouse and resource for sexual and relationship violence prevention professionals in K-12 and higher education. This grant harnesses the strengths of both organizations to help make our campuses and schools safer.

Functionally, SCOPE will become a prevention arm of ATIXA, instead of a stand-alone membership association. All of SCOPE's resources will become available to ATIXA's members.  ATIXA Executive Director, Brett A. Sokolow, Esq. spoke about this transformative development, "ATIXA resources are maxed with helping campuses to achieve Title IX compliance in terms of campus structure, policy and response.  We sense the deep need in the field to address prevention as a function of compliance, and feel the push to do so at the federal level, but ATIXA's ability to address prevention is limited by the daily crush of its current activities.  SCOPE has already established its prevention know-how and brand, and is already a sister organization to ATIXA under The NCHERM Group.  This fusion of both organizations will now permit SCOPE to target its focus and invest in deeper research and development of prevention modalities crucial to compliance with Title IX and the Campus SaVE Act, without having to rely on membership support driving its budget and research capacities."

ATIXA provides a professional association for school and college Title IX Coordinators and administrators who are interested in serving their districts and campuses more effectively.  Since 1972, Title IX has proved to be an increasingly powerful leveling tool, helping to advance gender equity in schools and colleges.  Title IX's benefits can be found in promoting equity in academic and athletics programs, preventing hostile environments on the basis of sex, prohibiting sexual harassment and sexual violence, protecting from retaliation and remedying the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination.  Every school district and college in the United States is required to have a Title IX Coordinator who oversees implementation, training and compliance with Title IX.  ATIXA brings campus and district Title IX coordinators and administrators into professional collaboration to explore best practices, share resources and advance the worthy goal of gender equity in education.

ATIXA has more than 1,300 active members, and has provided training on Title IX, civil rights, discrimination and investigations to more than 3,000 school and college administrators across the country.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
