Sexual conduct of staff toward students in schools is a serious and growing problem which has gained increasing national attention, from the headlines to the High Court, over the past decade. Commonly defined as unwanted and unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature, sexual conduct by teachers, administrators, and other employees aimed at students is an issue of sufficient magnitude to warrant special attention by school boards and school officials. While the vast number of school staff members are competent, capable and caring professionals, boundary invasions of a sexual nature unfortunately, do occur, and have a profound and lasting impact on the students, schools, communities and staff members involved. We want to make sure staff, students, and parents understand what is appropriate and what is not, as well as how to report inappropriate behavior. You are encouraged to view the training.
