Considerations for School District Sexual Misconduct Policies
from Department of Justice
The Obama administration released Considerations for School District Sexual Misconduct Policies, encouraging schools to review the federal gender equity law Title IX to respond better to reports of students being sexually harassed or assaulted. The document focuses on K-12 school districts' needs for a sexual misconduct policy that is broader than the misconduct of district employees, but includes student misconduct and how a district responds to student trauma secondary to sexual misconduct. This is not new regulation, but a call to fully understand and respond to legal obligations within the current Title IX legislation.
