Webinar: Responding to Sexual Harassment in Schools

Events Webinars

In light of the #metoo movement and the current news coverage of high profile sexual harassment cases, we address the issue of sexual harassment as it applies to elementary and secondary schools. In this Franczek webinar, Amy Dickerson and Jennifer Smith: (i) discuss the general obligation of a school district to respond to harassment claims by employees and students; (ii) offer an overview of state laws regarding sexual harassment policies, including the recently enacted Public Act 554 reported on here; and (iii) provide a checklist of action items schools and school districts should take to ensure they are prepared to properly respond to sexual harassment claims.
