Webinar: Addressing Adult Sexual Misconduct in the School Setting: An Overview

Addressing Adult Sexual Misconduct in the School Setting: An Overview

On Tuesday, September 19, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET, the REMS TA Center, on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education's (ED) Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS), will host a Webinar on the topic of adult sexual misconduct (ASM) in schools, and how schools and school districts can address this issue and better protect students through the framework of their emergency operations plan (EOP). The Webinar will provide an overview of the issue and recommended ways to prevent incidences of ASM, such as through the development of appropriate policies and procedures, and effective training of school personnel. It will also give direction on how to integrate ASM into a school or district EOP through the six-step planning process recommended in the Guide for Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans (School Guide).

This event will also feature a dedicated 15-minute Q&A session during which presenters will field questions from participants.
