OPINION: School Board Member Details Districts Steps to Prevent Sexual Harassment

Open letter to Tim Rood regarding sexual harassment prevention training.
I’d like to thank you, on behalf of the School Board, for your input on sexual harassment training in the District. Earlier this fall, the District began to take steps to update sexual harassment policies to ensure they are consistent with Title IX, Ed Code and best practices under the law; and to outline procedures for providing staff training and professional development on sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and Title IX. The District expects new policies will be in place for Board review early in 2018.
Currently, and in accordance with Ed Code, all District administrators and/or supervisors are required to participate in sexual harassment training every two years. The District will change the frequency to every year. As you may already know, sexual harassment training for our union employees is part of contract negotiations.
Amal Smith, School Board Member
