Recently, a guidance package was released by the U.S. Department of Education in an effort to help schools prevent and eliminate peer-to-peer sexual harassment and sexual violence, comply with Title IX sex discrimination prohibitions and create a positive school climate.
The package may be accessed here.
The package contains multiple materials including administrator guidance, online learning modules for school faculty and staff, a response team planning guide and trauma sensitivity training. Additionally, the package includes a school leader area with resources for Title IX coordinators, for working with law enforcement and for learning about trauma and bias.
Further, numerous handouts are provided for faculty and staff, which outline what to do in specific situations. The worksheets are designed to guide staff examining the school environment and developing self-care habits. If you have any questions or concerns about the content, please let me know.
