    • On the scope of the school’s education program or activity
    • On how to conduct an investigation and grievance process
    • On how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue
    • On how to avoid conflicts of interest and bias
    • Decision-makers must receive training on any technology to be used at a live hearing, and on issues of relevance of questions and evidence, including when questions and evidence about a complainant’s sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant
